HySA makes progress on hydrogen fuel production

South Africa hydrogen fuel

Hydrogen fuel continues to receive strong support from South Africa Hydrogen fuel is beginning to pick up more support in South Africa. The country is home to one of the fastest growing fuel cell industries in the world, largely due to the country’s access to platinum, which is a major component of fuel cell energy systems. HySA, a government organization devoted to the promotion of hydrogen fuel, has been working to address the country’s lack of a sufficient hydrogen fuel infrastructure. The group has made significant progress in this endeavor,…

SunHydro’s plans for a hydrogen highway change as parent company looks to cater to the auto industry’s needs

Hydrogen Fuel Station Opens

Last year, SunHydro, a subsidiary of Proton OnSite, a hydrogen fuel cell manufacturer, built a hydrogen fuel station in Connecticut. The station was the first of nine that were planned to be built throughout the country as an attempt to kick start a “hydrogen highway” in the nation. SunHydro, however, has yet to build another station. The delay is due to executives from Proton OnSite changing plans concerning the stations in an attempt to better accommodate the needs of automakers who are launching hydrogen-powered vehicles in 2013. Without an appropriate…
