Daimler Truck, Linde unveil new hydrogen refueling technology

February 9, 2024

Daimler Truck and Linde Engineering have jointly developed sLH2, a new process for handling subcooled liquid hydrogen.

Compared to gaseous hydrogen, this approach allows for a higher storage density, a greater range, faster refueling, lower costs and superior energy efficiency. Refueling takes around ten to fifteen minutes for a 40-ton heavy-duty truck, carrying 80 kg of liquid hydrogen for a range of 1,000 kilometers and more.

“This and further advantages make sLH2 a practical, CO2-neutral alternative to diesel in the heavy-duty vehicle sector. The technology we have developed with Daimler Truck will help pave the way for the development of a robust refueling network, which is essential to keep vehicles moving and supply chains intact,” said Juergen Nowicki, Executive Vice President Linde plc and CEO of Linde Engineering.
