    This is great for environment if the hydrogen production does not create any pollution and the production process powered by energy produced with zero carbon emission.

    Air Products and Saudi Aramco have opened Saudi Arabia’s first hydrogen fuelling station.


    The pilot station will fuel an initial fleet of six Toyota Mirai fuel cell electric vehicles with high-purity compressed hydrogen at Air Products’ new Technology Centre in the Dhahran Techno Valley Science Park.

    Dr. Sahel N. Abduljauwad, Rector of King Fahd University of Petroleum and Minerals and Chairman, Dhahran Techno Valley Holding Company; Seifi Ghasemi, Chairman, President and CEO of Air Products; and Amin H. Nasser, President and Chief Executive Officer of Saudi Aramco inaugurate the first hydrogen fuelling station

    “It is well known that our world needs a sustainable system to address environmental challenges while also meeting growing energy demand. Hydrogen and fuel cell technologies are well positioned to be part of the solution,” said Seifi Ghasemi, Air Products’ Chairman, President and CEO.

    “We are honoured to collaborate with Saudi Aramco to establish and develop a sustainable, hydrocarbon-based hydrogen supply system for fuel cell vehicles in Saudi Arabia.”

    Air Products’ proprietary SmartFuel® hydrogen fuelling technology will be incorporated into the new station to supply Toyota Mirai fuel cell vehicles with compressed hydrogen.

    It is expected the fleet of Toyota Mirai vehicles will have a driving range of 500km with water as their only emission and the ability to be fuelled in five minutes.

    Saudi Aramco is a petroleum and natural gas company based in Saudi Arabia and Amin H. Nasser, President and Chief Executive Officer of Saudi Aramco, said, “Today’s milestone is an important step in making oil-to-hydrogen a reality as Saudi Aramco continues to be focused on creating breakthrough technologies and solutions as part of our long term efforts to reduce carbon emissions and address climate concerns.”

    Water vapor is a green house more potent than CO2. Many challenges to make hydrogen fuel cells practical. All electric cars are better at this point.
