Material Handling

On-site and on-demand hydrogen generation for fuel-cell forklifts and industrial vehicles.

Our scalable hydrogen generators can lower the cost and increase reliability and safety for operators running fuel cell forklifts and industrial vehicles. With material handling vehicles typically staying at base, or returning to base regularly, on-site hydrogen generation is an ideal solution.

Low Operating Costs

Hydrogen Fuel Cell Benefits

Hydrogen fuel cells are changing the way the world works, and material handling operations are leading the way. 

 

Today, fleet managers are replacing the lead-acid batteries in electric forklift trucks with hydrogen fuel cells at record rates and, in the process, are seeing operational improvements like increased productivity, lower operating costs and reduced carbon footprint.

The cost and availability of hydrogen is often a critical factor in determining the economic feasibility of a fuel cell forklift solution for the small to midsize distribution center.

 

Delivered hydrogen produced at large scale facilities can be expensive and site storage is often limited by regulations.  Hydrogen can also be produced on‐site using an electrolyzer, but electrolyzers are expensive and power hungry.

The Element 1 L-Series Hydrogen generator was designed to provide a scalable hydrogen solution for small to midsize distribution centers, delivering the overall lowest cost of hydrogen for the warehouse operator.

Target Uses 

  • Lift trucks 

  • Container handlers 

Making Hydrogen A Reality

Lowest Total Cost of Hydrogen

Converts an environmentally friendly, easily handled, readily available, and hydrogen dense feedstock (blend of methanol and DI water) into fuel cell-grade hydrogen at the lowest cost per kilogram.

Lowest Initial Cost of Equipment

Lower capital cost compared to legacy electrolyzers and natural gas reformers.  An L-Series hydrogen generator can reduce the cost of a typical hydrogen refueling station by 25% or more, stretching the available capital to build more refueling stations and extend hydrogen coverage.

Versatile Solution

Scalable hydrogen generation from 50 kg/d to 1,000 kg/d allowing the operator to size hydrogen production according to the evolving needs of the fuel cell fleet operations.

Key Advantages

For the Hydrogen Refueling Station Operator

Easy Siting

Compact design with a limited footprint allows for flexible installation into both existing and proposed fueling locations.

Reliable Operation

Few moving parts, low maintenance requirements, and a long economic life.

Environmentally Friendly

Quiet and zero emissions with no particulate matter, and low carbon intensity.
