BMW’s hydrogen technology partnered with GM and Honda
Munich, Germany – Collaboration between BMW AG, General Motors and Honda has announced a goal of a joint development of a tank coupling for liquid hydrogen to be established as a worldwide standard. “Hydrogen as a fuel of the future can only achieve blanket coverage if we develop a convenient, standardized fuelling technology,” said Dr. Frank Ochmann, head of the BMW CleanEnergy project.
The BMW Group has been working on hydrogen vehicles, powered by a combustion engine, since 1979, and was involved in the first public hydrogen filling station at Munich Airport. The ongoing CleanEnergy Partnership now has a hydrogen filling station in Berlin, a milestone en route to setting up a hydrogen infrastructure in Germany.
