Luxfer alternative fuel cylinders are used globally in a variety of applications including city and school buses, refuse collection, freight transportation, shuttle services and more.
This animation highlights some of many possible, and exciting, applications of hydrogen fuels. Come on an environmentally friendly journey with us, each step we take…
‘Organisations around the world are working to reduce fleet emissions and Luxfer’s alternative fuel systems provide fast fuelling and extended range with considerable environmentally friendly benefits.’
- Mark Trudgeon, VP of Technology and Innovation at Luxfer
We supply alternative fuel cylinders for all major forms of transportation, including buses, trucks, trains, forklifts, boats and aviation – so whatever you need us for, we’re ready to go.
Luxfer offers a range of lightweight cylinders and accessories for hydrogen fuel cell-powered vehicles.
Using hydrogen or CNG for your transit fleet provides a cost-effective fuel solution with a comparable range as diesel but without the harmful emissions.
Luxfer CNG and hydrogen fuel cell-powered solutions will provide your fleet comparable power with the benefits of fast filling and a long driving range.
Hydrogen and CNG-powered refuse trucks typically have the same range and fueling times as their diesel counterparts but are much quieter and have reduced maintenance costs.
Luxfer CNG and hydrogen fuel cell-powered solutions will transform your delivery fleet and help you meet your company's environmental goals.
150 school districts in the US rely on CNG buses. Our solutions can help reduce emissions, improve passenger health, and lowering maintenance and running costs.
Hydrogen offers many benefits to marine transport - fewer moving parts, quieter operation and fume free. An efficient and clean alternative.
Zero-emission solutions for the rail industry allowing near-silent operation, improved service possibilities and massively reduced infrastructure costs.
Fuel-cell powered drones can fly for much longer offering significant benefits to film, inspection, and inventory scanning industries.
Alternative fuel solutions significantly reduce harmful emissions, giving manufacturers more scope for greener transportation methods.
Luxfer sets the standard for quality and efficiency in the alternative fuel industry. There is no better cylinder for transportation today.
Available in Europe and select markets, hydrogen fuel with G-Stor H2 technology.
Hydrogen fuel systems for buses, trucks, trains, and boats are a Luxfer speciality. Available in a number of longitudinal and transversal configurations, these lightweight systems operate at service pressures up to 350 bar (5,000 psi).Alternative fuel Transit bus Heavy duty truck Refuse vehicle Van and utility vehicle Marine Rail Drone and UAV Material handling
Luxfer’s G-Stor Go H2 products are the newest entry to our line of lightweight high-pressure hydrogen-storage cylinders.Alternative fuel Hydrogen Transit bus Heavy duty truck Refuse vehicle Van and utility vehicle Marine Rail
Available in an extensive range of sizes, G-Stor Pro cylinders consist of a Luxfer-manufactured aluminum liner fully over-wrapped with aerospace-grade carbon fiber. The high thermal conductivity of the aluminum liner helps remove heat from the gas generated during a fast fill, providing a more complete fill every time.Alternative fuel Transit bus Heavy duty truck Refuse vehicle Van and utility vehicle School bus Bulk gas transport
Luxfer’s G-Stor Go Type 4 composite cylinders for compressed natural gas are available in an extensive range of sizes suitable for medium-duty and heavy-duty vehicle fuel systems.Alternative fuel Transit bus Heavy duty truck Refuse vehicle Van and utility vehicle School bus
Luxfer’s G-Stor Pro H2 products are the leading line of lightweight high-pressure hydrogen-storage cylinders used by a number of the world’s largest OEMs that design, develop and manufacture state-of-the-art compressed hydrogen-storage systems for fuel-cell and internal-combustion engines.Alternative fuel Hydrogen Transit bus Heavy duty truck Refuse vehicle Van and utility vehicle Marine Rail Drone and UAV Material handling
In addition to cylinders, Luxfer offers a superior line of high-flow valves, PRDs (pressure-relief devices), neck blocks, strap mounts, and end plugs. Also available are complete cylinder kits for Alternative Fuel applications.Alternative fuel Transit bus Heavy duty truck Refuse vehicle Van and utility vehicle School bus Marine Rail
350,000 miles (563,000km) of carbon fiber filament are used to make each Type 4 alternative fuel cylinder – that’s enough to reach the moon and come halfway back.
