hydrogen powered vehicles

Hydrogen powered transports’ vehicles end their journey with thermo-hydraulic conditions far from optimal.

Hydrogen vehicles mostly use fuel cell technologies which rely on compressed GH2 stored in high pressure composite vessels. Electric fuel-cell-powered vehicles using gaseous hydrogen are sufficient for small distance and urban mobility.

Nevertheless, liquid hydrogen should meet an increasing demand for long distance or intensive transportation. Hydrogen engines working with fuel cells are compatible with liquid hydrogen on board storage, just requiring conversion from a liquid to gaseous state through component synergies.

Absolut Hydrogen is able to conceive efficient and state-of-the-art hydrogen technological solutions for all vehicles : trucks, jet and aircrafts, trains etc.

Hydrogen fuel cell

Hydrogen fuel cell electric vehicles (FCEVs) use electricity to power an electric motor.

The propulsion system is powered by hydrogen converted into electricity by a fuel cell. Unlike conventional vehicles with internal combustion engines, hydrogen fuel cells produce no harmful exhaust emissions, only heat and water.

In a hydrogen fuel cell, hydrogen molecules in gaseous form are separated by a catalyst. The protons and electrons take separate paths and the electrons generate a flow of electricity.

The power generated by a fuel cell depends on various factors including the fuel cell type, its size, operating temperature and the gas pressure at the entrance of the fuel-cell.

Most hydrogen powered transport with fuel-cells use Polymer Electrolyte Membrane (PEM) technology, which uses perfluoro sulfonic acid as its electrolyte. Nevertheless. The Molten Carbonate fuel cell (MCFC) produces more electricity but its operating temperature of approximately 650°C isn’t reliable or safe for electric vehicles
