Hydrogen is the first element in the periodic table and the most abundant chemical element in the universe. As the global energy ecosystem evolves, hydrogen is gaining importance because of its enormous versatility. In the course of ongoing decarbonization within the industrial, power and mobility sectors, the hydrogen economy will protect our environment and make the planet habitable for future generations. As clean energy carriers are in demand, Eberspaecher is bringing its global reach and expertise to this expanding market sector. As global markets move towards zero‑emissions goals, using hydrogen in various applications can reduce carbon emissions significantly. The hydrogen economy brings a significant value to climate protection goals.
We at Eberspächer are aware of our role as a global technological leader. Clean Mobility is anchored in our corporate strategy MOVE. With hydrogen solutions for the industrial and mobility sectors, we are moving strongly towards corporate goals to contribute to climate protection.
Reducing Emissions Sustainably
The positive environmental benefit of hydrogen to reduce emissions is particularly evident in the industrial and mobility sectors. Innovative fuel cell systems and hydrogen combustion engines contribute to a higher level of efficiency and sustainability.
The performance of the systems depends on the components used. This is where Eberspächer’s expertise comes in: The products optimize the overall system in terms of service life, efficiency, manufacturing and operating costs. This not only includes solutions for a clean and quiet mobility of the future.
FUEL CELL SYSTEMS: STATIONARY AND MOBILE APPLICATIONS
Hydrogen powered fuel cells work by generating electrical energy through the reaction of hydrogen and oxygen within the fuel cell stack. Chemical energy is then converted into electrical power and heat. No emissions are produced in the process; only water as a waste product has to be separated. With industry leading air compressors and controllers, Eberspächer Vairex contributes to the overall performance of these systems – in mobile as well as stationary applications. Eberspächer uses its expertise in exhaust gas technology to dissipate the water vapor and further reduce noise.
HYDROGEN ENGINES: EXPERIENCED-BASED ADVANTAGE THROUGH EXHAUST TECHNOLOGY
In the Mobility sector, hydrogen is of particular interest for commercial, heavy duty and off-road vehicles. As one of the world's leading system suppliers, Purem by Eberspächer is transferring its know-how in exhaust technology to combustion engine technology for the Hydrogen sector. The focus is on the aftertreatment of emissions from the engine oil path and nitrogen oxide reduction. This comes as the combustion of hydrogen also produces carbon-based pollutants in much lower concentrations, which have to be after treated.
