The key technology of the future

Hydrogen (H2)

Climate friendly

Environmentally friendly and high range alternative

Hydrogen is a key technology for future mobility. Hydrogen (H2) is almost infinitely available and free from local harmful emissions. We have recognized the great potential and are therefore investing in the research and development of this future-oriented fuel.

Hydrogen is the most abundant element in the universe and is almost infinitely available, easy to store, invisible, odorless and non-toxic. However, hydrogen in its pure form is hardly ever found, which means that it has to be produced before it can be used as a fuel. Various methods are used to obtain pure hydrogen.  At present, however, it is not yet possible to produce hydrogen in a cost-effective and environmentally friendly manner.

In Europe, electrolysis is the most widespread process. In this process, excess electricity or electricity from renewable sources, such as solar, wind or water power, is passed through water, which splits water into its components, acid and hydrogen, and ultimately captures hydrogen as a gas. Another possibility is steam reforming, in which hydrogen can be obtained by adding highly heated steam to natural gas.

Who is hydrogen suitable for?

H2 is versatile, so that the field of application of hydrogen as a fuel extends from commercial vehicles, heavy goods vehicles and passenger transport to rail transport. The benefits of hydrogen are also being researched for air transport - the larger volume of hydrogen compared to kerosene is still a problem at the moment. For heavy-duty transport, hydrogen is a suitable alternative for the future due to its high energy density and thus long ranges. However, there is still a need for research and development for efficient use and application.

Hydrogen can be used:

  • for trucks
  • for passenger cars
  • for bus
  • for train

Availability of hydrogen?

The current availability of fuel cannot yet keep up with the availability of LNG or CNG. There is also no suitable and comprehensive infrastructure yet. Currently, the production of hydrogen is very expensive. At the same time, the acquisition costs for hydrogen-powered vehicles are very high. It will therefore take some time before the fuel reaches its full market development. At Alternoil, we have long recognised the great potential of hydrogen to play an important role as a fuel for road transport and are actively involved in the development and expansion of the H2 infrastructure.
