'On the road to sustainable mobility'
Hydrogen can make a big contribution to reducing CO2 emissions: up to nearly 100%, if hydrogen is produced without generating emissions, for example using solar or wind energy, or sustainable biomass or biogas. There are interesting opportunities for doing so in combination with solar and wind energy: power-to-gas. While driving, cars with fuel cells are entirely emissions-free (only pure water vapour comes out of the exhaust). This makes hydrogen-fuelled cars one of the ways of achieving the EU's energy and climate objectives.
Linde Gas Benelux and hydrogen
Linde offers hydrogen solutions throughout the chain: from production and conversion to liquid to transport and storage, including at filling stations. We are also closely involved in innovations aimed at setting up a practical infrastructure for the sustainable use of hydrogen as a fuel.
Hydrogen in practice
Forze racing car, Delft University of Technology
A racing car powered by hydrogen, sponsored by Linde. The Forze team at Delft University of Technology is constantly working on the development of a new ‘Forze’ model. Together with students from Rotterdam University of Applied Sciences, the team aims to develop sustainable technology and present it in an attractive way.

The Shell Eco-marathon
This event is one of the most challenging innovation competitions in the world for students and is held annually in Europe, the US and Asia. For years, Linde has been a worldwide partner of the Shell Eco-marathon, as its exclusive hydrogen supplier. Teams using vehicles fitted with fuel cells receive hydrogen in ready-to-use gas cylinders along with the associated technical support.
Pioneers in a Hyundai ix35 Fuel Cell
What a wonderful prospect to be able to say we were the very first in the Netherlands in 2015 driving around in a car with fuel. More about seven Dutch pioneers.
City buses of the Amsterdam municipal transport company
Since January 2012 and provisionally until December 2014, the Amsterdam municipal transport company (GVB) has been operating two hybrid fuel cell buses using hydrogen fuel. These actually run on electricity, which is generated on board the bus itself. This takes place by bringing hydrogen in one of the 816 fuel cells into contact with oxygen, so generating electricity. The only by-product released is steam. The hydrogen is generated from ordinary water by a special installation at the depot in Amsterdam North.
The GVB would ideally like to replace more diesel vehicles with hydrogen. However, a fuel cell bus currently still costs over € 800,000 ─ more than four ordinary diesel buses.
