Hydrogen Fuel Selling At LA Shell Station Later This Month


As part of a research project involving GM and the US Department of Energy, the station is the first of a string of stops to feature hydrogen fuel in the LA area. The idea is to create a network to push production and adoption of hydrogen-powered vehicles forward. As a short-term solution, all the hydrogen is created on-site with an electrolyzer.

But all parties involved agree that to serve a heavier load of vehicles down the line, a petrochemical plant will be necessary to produce the hydrogen. That is until it becomes possible to manufacture it from cleaner sources like carbon capture and storage, bio-feedstocks and municipal solid waste.

This isn't the first hydrogen station on the block, but the fact that it is backed by GM could be the catalyst needed to start making progress.
