Hydrogen – key element of the future

Bosch Manufacturing Solutions Hydrogen H2 PEMFC SOFC Fuel Cell

When it comes to climate-neutral production and transport, there's no getting around green hydrogen. Hydrogen is a clean fuel whose combustion in a fuel cell produces only water. It is an attractive fuel option for transportation and power generation. It can be used in cars, in homes, for portable energy and in many other applications.

Fuel Cell Environmental Responsibility Verantwortung für die Umwelt

Environmental responsibility

Environmental responsibility

In the fuel cell, hydrogen (H2) reacts with oxygen (O2) from the ambient air. The hydrogen is converted into electrical energy, which is used for driving. In addition, heat and pure water (H2O) are produced.
