DOE-funded projects from as far back as 15 years ago are now making an impact for gas generation and purification company Air Products, as the fuel cell industry takes off. Starting with a project with Air Products Hydrogen Energy Systems group, the City of Las Vegas constructed and now operates the world’s first integrated hydrogen energy station: on-site production of hydrogen to both fuel vehicles and produce electricity. A critical element of this station was the hydrogen generator developed by Air Products, with hydrogen is produced using steam methane reforming.
