FTcase Makes a Big Splash in the Desert

The hydrogen revolution is gaining momentum, and San Francisco-based Zero Emission Industries (ZEI) is at the forefront with its groundbreaking mobile hydrogen fueling system, the FTcase. Unveiled in mid-May 2024, the FTcase is set to transform how we think about hydrogen refueling, making it more accessible, flexible, and practical for a wide range of applications.

A Showstopper at ACT Expo

The debut of FTcase at the ACT Expo in Las Vegas was a pivotal moment for the hydrogen industry. Just one week after its launch, ZEI demonstrated the critical need and utility of this portable hydrogen fueling solution. The FTcase, along with ZEI’s in-house developed mid-stream hydrogen supply truck, showcased its versatility by refueling two Class 8 hydrogen fuel cell trucks and a hydrogen fuel cell passenger car. This was not in a controlled environment but in real-world conditions—one demonstration took place in a Las Vegas parking lot, and another at a truck stop in the middle of the Mojave Desert, over a hundred miles from the nearest hydrogen fueling station.

Breaking Boundaries

These remote fueling demonstrations were more than just a showcase of technology; they were a powerful statement to hydrogen equipment OEMs, their customers, and industry stakeholders. The FTcase proved that safe, easy, and flexible hydrogen fueling is possible anywhere, breaking down one of the most significant barriers to the adoption of hydrogen-powered equipment: a lack of fueling infrastructure and tools.

Bridging the Gap

ZEI’s FTcase is a testament to the company’s innovation and commitment to providing real-world hydrogen solutions. By bridging the gap between the rapid adoption of hydrogen-powered equipment and existing fueling infrastructure, ZEI is paving the way for a cleaner, more sustainable future. The FTcase is not just a product; it’s a game-changer for the hydrogen ecosystem, offering a practical solution that meets the needs of today’s demanding environment.

Stay tuned for more updates as ZEI continues to push the boundaries of what’s possible in hydrogen technology.
