“Hydrogen fuel technology is a fascinating area of development for both Shell and us. We are delighted to partner with Shell in this official capacity, supporting students who are developing this technology in an environment about which we care passionately. We are sure that the work undertaken at the Shell Eco-marathons will benefit future R&D and that today’s students will be a driving force for tomorrow’s car development,” said Markus Bachmeier, Head of Hydrogen Solutions at Linde.
Race teams, with 100-200 students each one, using a fuel cell power unit for their competition vehicles are supplied with hydrogen in ready-to-install gas cylinders. Furthermore, Linde’s long-standing expertise in hydrogen enables them not only to manage the hydrogen logistics but also to provide valuable technical support and advice to the student teams from across the world.
Besides pushing the boundaries of fuel efficiency, Shell Eco-marathon is also an educational platform, giving innovators practical experience of developing smarter, sustainable transportation.
