Air Products has announced it has signed a contract with SK Energy to construct a hydrogen fueling station for a novel energy project to be based in World Cup Park in Seoul, South Korea
The hydrogen fueling station to be onstream in July 2010 will supply hydrogen produced solely from landfill gas to fuel a fleet of vehicles.
The project is part of Seoul's push to use alternative supply means to generate 10 percent of its energy consumption by 2020, and to use hydrogen for 30 percent of the switch.
"This is a very innovative project with high goals, and we are proud to be part of this plan and to work with SK Energy, which is a leading Korean company in hydrogen reforming technology. Seoul should be applauded for its foresight to use this project and World Cup Park's prominent name and location as a showcase and model for its future energy plans," said Bob Kelly, business development manager for Hydrogen Energy Systems at Air Products.
"Processing a waste stream to make hydrogen for use as an alternative fuel is a direction Air Products, together with its customers, is pursuing to take advantage of underutilized hydrogen sources." Kelly noted this will be Air Products' sixth hydrogen fueling station in South Korea.
