Can hydrogen be used as a fuel?

CMB.TECH Carburant à l'hydrogène

Yes, hydrogen gas is increasing as a fuel for passenger vehicles and other transport systems.

It can be used in fuel cells to make electricity that can drive electric motors, and when combined with a battery it can form a hybrid fuel cell battery-electric vehicle. It can also be burned in Internal Combustion Engines (ICEs) such as the one used in our applications.

Green hydrogen is an environmentally friendly fuel with no associated CO₂ emissions at the point of use because it is produced without any emission (electrolyser from renewable electricity).

As such hydrogen has the potential to dramatically reduce our dependency on imported oil as well as reduce the consequences associated with emissions.
