HyGear Wins Mercedes-Benz Award for its On-Site Natural Gas Reformer

18 Jun 2013

HyGear Hydrogen Generation System

Mercedes-Benz has awarded its fourth BlueEFFICIENCY award to HyGear for its small-scale natural-gas-fed hydrogen generation system. The BlueEFFICIENCY award credits innovations in sustainable mobility. HyGear’s system creates hydrogen vehicle fuel via the steam reformation of natural gas from the grid on site and on demand in a downscaled version of the industrial process that creates most of the world’s hydrogen at present. HyGear claims that its downscaled process does not incur a loss in efficiency.
