Commercial Vehicle Fueling with Proton Electrolysis Technology
In the case of hydrogen as a transportation fuel for vehicles, the network of fueling stations may include a combination of centralized and de-centralized fuel production. The continuum of centralized to de-centralized production includes the highly centralized massive hydrocarbon fuel processing plants that may number in the tens to hundreds, neighborhood fueling stations that may number in the tens to hundreds of thousands, to the ultimate de-centralized solution of home fueling stations that may number in the millions.
Proton OnSites’ PEM electrolysis systems produce hydrogen with 99.9995% purity. In fact, the only impurities are water vapor and trace amounts of nitrogen and oxygen. Proton OnSites’ hydrogen purity has been verified by key automobile manufacturers. Proton OnSites’ high differential pressure PEM technology offers the potential to accept grid or off-grid renewable electricity to generate hydrogen. By enabling transportation fuel generation by renewable electricity, a truly carbon neutral transportation fuel can be realized. Even if renewable electricity is not available, charging transportation vehicles at off-peak times is a valuable utilization of electric utility base load capacity.
