    Hydrogen Fuel Cell Technology

    Luxfer G-Stor H2 cylinders help fuel emission-free hydrogen fuel cell buses that provide an extended range with short refueling times.

Available in Europe and select markets, Luxfer alternative fuel systems not only provide cleaner emissions compared to traditional diesel fuel systems, their weight savings also deliver an operational cost benefit due to lower fuel and maintenance costs.

Luxfer alternative fuel systems are trusted by many bus OEMs around the globe - Luxfer G-Stor Pro cylinders are designed for both compressed natural gas (CNG) and renewable biogas systems. Luxfer also supplies hydrogen fuel systems for zero-emission fuel cell buses and trains fitted with Luxfer's 350-bar G-Stor H2 cylinders, coupled with high-precision gas-flow control provided by Luxfer's proprietary high-pressure hydrogen tank valve.

Luxfer systems benefits

  • Lightness of weight from G-Stor Pro and G-Stor H2 carbon composite cylinder technology.
  • Reduced weight saves money by increasing fuel economy compared to steel cylinder systems.
  • Reduced wear of brakes, suspension and tyres.
  • Luxfer is an ISO 9001 approved company.
  • All systems are manufactured in a newly-expanded Luxfer ECE R110 approved facility.
  • More than 9,000 Luxfer alternative fuel systems are in service around the globe.

Applications

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.

Transit bus

Using CNG or hydrogen for your transit fleet provides a cost-effective fuel solution with a comparable range as diesel but without the harmful emissions.

Heavy duty truck

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.

Refuse vehicle

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.

Van and utility vehicle

Luxfer CNG and hydrogen fuel cell-powered solutions will transform your delivery fleet and help you meet your company's environmental goals.

School bus

150 school districts in the US rely on NGV buses. Our solutions can help reduce emissions, improve passenger health, and lowering maintenance and running costs.

Marine

Hydrogen offers many benefits to marine transport - fewer moving parts, quieter operation and fume free. An efficient and clean alternative.

Rail

Zero-emission solutions for the rail industry allowing near-silent operation, improved service possibilities and massively reduced infrastructure costs.

Drone and UAV

Fuel-celled powered drones can fly for much longer offering significant benefits to film, inspection, and inventory scanning industries.

Material handling

With a higher energy to mass ratio than batteries, hydrogen fuel cells last longer and can be refueled quicker, making them a great fit warehouses and distribution centers.
