Hydrogen mobility around the world: United States and China

California and China both understand just how important it is to develop new energy sources if we are to reduce our greenhouse gas emissions. California is deeply invested in sustainable development and for several years now has had an ambitious hydrogen mobility policy – this, in a country where the car is queen and oil is its king. China, whose cities are suffocating beneath clouds of particle emissions, is speeding up its deployment of hydrogen technology in the transport sector.

Transforming waste into renewable energy

Each day, human activity produces over 10 billion kilos of waste around the world. At a time when the energy transition is a key concern of governments, society and industry, Air Liquide is recycling organic material from farming or from household or industrial waste to convert it into biomethane, a clean and renewable alternative energy source.

HyBalance: towards carbon-free hydrogen

In September 2018 in Hobro, Denmark, Air Liquide inaugurated HyBalance, a pilot site for the production of carbon-free hydrogen. This unit’s specificity is that it uses electrolysis technology which allows it to balance the electricity grid and store surplus electricity in the form of hydrogen that will be used in industry and transportation. This project was initiated in 2016 in a country that is pioneering the energy transition.
