Hydrogen Automotive Applications

equipped with fittings from STÖHR ARMATUREN

The industry today
Electro-mobility is currently the most popular solution to the greenhouse gas emissions caused by heavy traffic – and hydrogen is just one of its facets. The potential of fuel cell technology is beyond question, and hydrogen plays a major role in the global discussion on how to reach climate targets.
Fuel cell technology is an integral part of the powertrain strategy of most truck OEMs. The advantages are clear: zero emissions, long ranges and short tanking times, plus a wide range of applications from cars to buses, large commercial vehicles and stationary applications.
Another bridging solution under evaluation is hydrogen combustion engine technology – a robust solution that has the potential to become more rapidly available.

Green energy and future needs
A hydrogen cycle is an effective way of decarbonising heavy traffic and achieving emission-free mobility. ‘Green’ hydrogen is produced using electricity from renewable energy sources (water, sun and wind) and is therefore climate-friendly and practically emission-free.
Future fuel-cell-powered vehicles will be part of a hydrogen ecosystem. Hydrogen will be stored in containers with several high-pressure tanks and transported to a network of filling stations for use by hydrogen-powered trucks, buses and cars.

Our mission
STÖHR is committed to having a positive impact on the environment and offers solutions for hydrogen-based transportation systems at all medium temperatures, valve sizes and pressure levels for both on-road mobile applications and stationary use at filling stations. Get in touch to discuss your design concept and we’ll work with you to design, prototype and manufacture the fittings and installations you need for mass production. We’re open to your challenge!
