      Continental solutions for hydrogen gas stations: This is how energy hits the road

      • Innovative hose solution enables safe distribution of hydrogen at the gas station
      • Hybrid combination of thermoplastics, steel and rubber meets high requirements for transporting H2


      Hydrogen (H2) is seen as a beacon of hope for the sustainable transformation of energy-intensive industries and heavy-duty transport. However, H2 not only has great potential, but also high demands on the necessary network and transport infrastructure. Continental's solutions support the entire H2 value chain from production to use in fuel cells, for example with dispensing hose solutions for hydrogen gas stations.


      The unique hybrid hose solution combines a highly impermeable thermoplastic inner liner with steel reinforcement to withstand pressures of up to 700 bar. The rubber-based outer cover provides the flexibility needed for convenient insertion of the fueling nozzle into the vehicle and shields the user from the low transport temperatures of hydrogen.

      In addition to this innovative hose solution, Continental's materials experts are developing the corresponding connecting components, such as seals and couplings, to ensure the efficiency and safety of the refueling process even at the particularly challenging interfaces.


      Why Hydrogen and China are a Great Fit

      Interview with Dr. Jenny Yu, China Head of R&D at Continental’s Business Area ContiTech about the past, present and future of hydrogen and fuel-cell technology. Dr. Yu does not only oversee the research and development activities at Continental in the areas of conveying and industrial fluid solutions for the Chinese market. From the regional headquarters in Shanghai, she also plays a leading role when the technology company proactively contributes to new technologies that will determine the future of mobility – including the hydrogen and fuel cells.
