Air Products to build hydrogen refueling station near energy complex in Edmonton, Canada

Air Products & Chemicals, the world's largest producer of hydrogen, plans to build a hydrogen refueling station for trucks and cars near the energy complex it is building in Edmonton, Canada.

The refueling station will be the first for Air Products in Canada and the first commercial-scale station in the Canadian province of Alberta. A C$1 million grant from Canada will help fund the project. One million Canadian dollars equals $732,306 in U.S. currency.

Canada's national goal is to achieve net-zero emissions by 2050. Hydrogen can be used in place of some fossil fuels to cut carbon dioxide emissions, which are linked to climate change.

"This station is the next step in Air Products' commitment to Edmonton and the Province of Alberta and will serve as a model that can be replicated throughout Canada" to boost the hydrogen economy and cut emissions, Eric Guter, Air Products' Global Vice President of Hydrogen for Mobility, said in a statement.
