In readiness for the Olympic and Paralympic Games Paris 2024, the Air Liquide hydrogen station located at Place de l’Alma sports a new look.

 

A showcase of the network of stations deployed in Ile-de-France (Greater Paris area), Air Liquide’s hydrogen station located at the heart of the capital city is an integral part of the ambition to organize more sustainable Games. Just over 100 days before the start of the Olympic and Paralympic Games Paris 2024, this network of stations will enable the filling of 500 hydrogen cars, contributing to accelerate the use of hydrogen for mobility.

 

Official Supporter in hydrogen of Paris 2024, Air Liquide has designed and installed this station at Place de l’Alma (Paris). The Group will supply hydrogen of renewable origin to Paris 2024’s official fleet, which notably includes 500 hydrogen Toyota Mirai cars.

 

For vehicles with intensive-use, hydrogen presents significant benefits, enabling fast refilling time as well as a long autonomy. A hydrogen fill-up is possible in about 5 minutes, for a range of up to 650 kilometers.

 

Armelle Levieux, member of Air Liquide’s Executive Committee overseeing Hydrogen activities, underlines:

 

Paris 2024 represents a fantastic opportunity to accelerate the development and the adoption of hydrogen, a key solution to reduce CO2 emissions, in particular for intensive transport.

 

“Located at the heart of the French capital, the Place de l’Alma station embodies the showcase of an exceptional network, which will leave its mark as a lasting legacy. Present across the entire hydrogen value chain, Air Liquide contributes to the development of hydrogen, an essential molecule in the energy transition.”

 

Hydrogen is a key solution for decarbonizing various sectors such as industry and mobility. In the field of transport, which accounts for a quarter[1] of CO2 emissions worldwide, Air Liquide has multiplied by ten the volumes of hydrogen supplied to mobility worldwide in two years. The Group provides hydrogen to approximately 15,000 cars, 500 buses and 1,000 trucks in the world.
