Air Liquide will provide delivery service and back-up hydrogen supply for the hydrogen refilling stations serving the Shanghai World Expo. Following an agreement with ENN, the official operator of the hydrogen filling stations, Air Liquide will provide all logistical means, including trailers and tractors, for the transportation of hydrogen. In addition, Air Liquide’s hydrogen sources will be used as a back-up to ensure a safe and reliable supply of hydrogen throughout the World Expo. About 200 fuel cell vehicles will be used to transport visitors and guests during the event. These vehicles do not generate any pollution. Air Liquide has over 40 years of experience in hydrogen, covering the entire chain, from production, storage and distribution to application.
Air Liquide is also the main sponsor of the Franco-Chinese symposium on pre-hospital emergency medicine, which will take place on May 12th in the French Pavilion’s auditorium at the Shanghai 2010 World Expo. This symposium will contribute to better sharing of international expertise in the field of emergency care. Organized by the SAMU de Paris – the French System of Emergency Medical Assistance – and the Shanghai Health Bureau, the symposium will bring together internationally known French and Chinese medical experts, who will address around 120 Chinese emergency and respiratory practitioners, with the support of Air Liquide Medical Systems, dedicated to respiratory assistance equipment. This symposium is the first in a series of Franco-Chinese healthcare meetings scheduled under the auspices of the “Science and Thought” programme of the French Pavilion.
