New Hydrogen Bus Fueling Station At Orlando Florida Airport

The Orlando Florida, USA airport has a new hydrogen fueling station, installed to provision a new generation of clean shuttle buses. "Air Products' (NYSE:APD) hydrogen technology was officially put into operation this week in Orlando, Florida. Designed and constructed by Chevron Hydrogen Company, a division of Chevron U.S.A. Inc., the hydrogen fueling station is located near the Orlando Airport and will fuel a fleet of shuttle buses powered by modified internal combustion engines." The thought of waiting for a shuttle at baggage claim - and not having to breath diesel fumes - is certainly attractive. We don't have to wait for fuel cell technology to become more cost effective to benefit from better air quality. Knowing that the hydrogen reformation equipment can be more conveniently equipped to control pollutants than can a bus, we expect to see more of this in the future.
