Hydrogen for the future of energy, industry, and transportation

AS fossil fuels become increasingly scarce, hydrogen is the most abundant element in the universe and is already considered the fuel of the future. This is due to the fact that no harmful CO2 emissions are produced during combustion, only water vapor remains. 

While this sounds like a genuine climate saver, the value chain of green, CO2-neutral hydrogen is full of technical challenges. Starting with power generation from renewable energies for electrolysis, through to transportation and use in industry and transport.

With over 70 years of experience in sensor technology and explosion protection, Pepperl+Fuchs stand by the hydrogen industry and offer a broad portfolio along the entire value chain. It is in our DNA to address new requirements around hydrogen.

The prerequisite for green hydrogen is its production using electricity from renewable sources. To optimize the energy yield of solar and wind power plants and therefore ensure maximum efficiency, Pepperl+Fuchs offers a wide range of innovative sensor and signal transmission technologies.

Safety on All Transport Routes  

Since hydrogen is not usually produced where it is used, the explosive gas often has to travel long distances. Whether over land or on the high seas, safety on all transport routes is a top priority.  

Use of Hydrogen in Industry 

Particularly in energy-intensive industries such as the chemical, steel or cement industries, hydrogen will take on an important role in the future on the path to climate neutrality. 

Pepperl+Fuchs offers a range of solutions for all sectors of industry, for example for monitoring valves on transport pipelines in a plant, as well as interface technology for burner control and identification solutions for driverless transport systems powered by hydrogen. 

Safe Refueling at Hydrogen Gas Stations 

From delivery to storage in low-pressure storage tanks to dispensing at the pump, there are a number of factors to consider at hydrogen refueling stations due to the properties of hydrogen. 

With various products and solutions for hazardous areas, Pepperl+Fuchs create optimal conditions for safe processes and a convenient refueling process at the dispensing point at the same time.
