The airport in Orlando, Florida just got a new hydrogen fueling station for their buses. It is hoped that it will fuel a new line of clean shuttle buses for the airport.
Everyone involved sounds very pleased with themselves, considering the press release says:
“We are pleased to have provided equipment to this project in Florida and congratulate Chevron with successfully constructing and commissioning the fueling station. Air Products’ Series 300 hydrogen compression, storage and dispensing technology was integrated by Chevron into its advanced fueling station design for this project,” said Dan Rabun, Air Products’ business development manager for Hydrogen Energy Systems at Air Products. “This is the first hydrogen fueling equipment we have provided Chevron and we are pleased to begin this collaborative relationship. The goal is to advance system equipment and engineering in all aspects of safety, operability, and reliability.”
I hope more airports follow suit so I don’t have to pinch my nose every time I dash from a shuttle bus to the terminal. But then, flying itself isn’t really green, is it?
