Developing hydrogen fueling stations and demonstrating fuel cell technology for public transit

GTI has played a key role in numerous hydrogen fueling station projects, serving as the technical lead in collaboration with many local and national partners to improve fuel efficiency and reduce emissions among transit vehicles.

In June 2012, Capital Metro and the University of Texas Center for Electromechanics (UT-CEM) in Austin began operation of a hydrogen hybrid bus as a part of a year-long demonstration to test and further refine fuel-cell technology for public transit. It will fuel daily at a state-of-the-art hydrogen fueling station, designed by GTI, which allows for the on-site generation of hydrogen from pipeline natural gas, compression, storage and dispensing of high-pressure hydrogen.

Since 2007, GTI has hosted a publicly-accessible hydrogen fueling station at its headquarters in Des Plaines, Illinois.
