the north america r&d center of the national institute of clean-and-low-carbon energy (nice) under china energy recently completed its first bus hydrogen refueling demonstration at stark area regional transit authority (sarta) in the united states. the two sides are partnering to carry out a three-month demonstration project for field tests of the creative immersion pump-based mobile hydrogen refueling station developed by nice north america r&d center. during the demonstration period, the mobile hydrogen refueling station will provide refueling services to 10 buses and five minibuses powered with hydrogen fuel cells of sarta.
