Air Products Selects Proton Energy Systems as Preferred Supplier for Electrolysis-Bases Hydrogen Fueling Stations


Air Products announced the signing of a supply agreement with Proton Energy Systems, Inc., a subsidiary of Distributed Energy Systems Corp., and selection of Proton as the preferred supplier for its electrolysis-based hydrogen energy stations.

Under the supply agreement, Proton's HOGEN® hydrogen generators, which produce hydrogen from electricity and water in a clean and efficient process using its proprietary PEM technology, will initially be used at three previously announced Air Products fueling stations to be placed in California in 2005. Recently, Air Products was selected for three demonstration projects by the California South Coast Air Quality Management District (SCAQMD) for fueling stations to be placed in Burbank, Riverside and Santa Monica. Air Products and Proton have also collaborated on fueling stations to be located in Vermont, and at a station soon to be dispensing hydrogen for bus transportation at the University of Nevada-Las Vegas.

"From a PEM (proton exchange membrane) standpoint, Proton is a leader in this technology," said Ed Kiczek, senior business development manager, Future Energy Solutions at Air Products. "When you combine Proton's PEM electrolysis with our hydrogen compression, storage and dispensing technology, you have a fully comprehensive hydrogen fueling station with zero emissions at the site."
