China's Sinopec Petrochemical Corporation plans to build about 1,000 hydrogen refueling stations and combined gasoline-hydrogen refueling stations over the next five years to promote clean energy.
By the end of 2020, Sinopec Marketing Co. Ltd., a subsidiary of Sinopec, has completed a total of 27 pilot projects to build hydrogen filling stations in regions of the country such as Guangdong and Zhejiang provinces, Shanghai and Guangxi Zhuang Autonomous Region, Zhongguo Zhengquan Bao reported on Saturday. (China Securities Journal).
China at the end of 2020 announced that it plans to redirect production capacity to carbon-free production and invest about $ 5 trillion in carbon-free technologies.
Hydrogen filling station is a facility intended for refueling a vehicle that runs on hydrogen fuel. It can be part of a gas station offering fossil fuels, or as a stand-alone facility.
A hydrogen fuel cell is an environmentally friendly source of energy with an almost inexhaustible resource. It generates electricity through an electrochemical reaction, the only by-products of which are water vapor and heat. Unlike internal combustion engines, hydrogen systems have no moving parts and are therefore very efficient.
