It took one year and 17 million euros ($18.7 million) to build the plant, which is a collaboration between utility company Stadtwerke Mainz AG, gases and engineering company Linde Group, technology group Siemens AG and the RheinMain University of Applied Sciences. It addresses a major concern critics frequently cite against hydrogen fuel cell vehicles (FCVs): the carbon emissions of production plants. While using hydrogen as a fuel doesn’t create any tailpipe emissions, some are concerned with the way hydrogen is collected. Current techniques often pull hydrogen from natural gas, emitting carbon dioxide in the process.
