Shell opens hydrogen station at JFK airport

Shell opens hydrogen filling station at JFK airport.

Shell this week opened its second hydrogen filling station in the greater New York City area, providing improved access to hydrogen for drivers of fuel cell Chevrolet Equinoxes participating in Project Driveway.

Project Driveway selects consumers who sign up on the Internet in the greater New York City, Los Angeles, and Washington, D.C. areas to participate for two months at a time in the demonstration. Shell will open a third station this summer in the Bronx in conjunction with the New York City Department of Sanitation.

Shell's hydrogen station in White Plains has been operating there for more than a year, making up Shell's first cluster of hydrogen filling stations.

The station opened July 14, 2009, at JFK International Airport is a partnership between Shell, General Motors, the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey, and the US Department of Energy.
