Korea to add 1,200 hydrogen charging stations by 2040
The charging station is capable of supplying hydrogen to more than 70 automobiles every day.
Currently, Korea operates 29 hydrogen charging stations, including three in the capital city, with plans to gradually expand the number to 310 by 2022.
Hydrogen is an environment-friendly alternative to fossil fuels as automobiles running on the resource only create water in the process of generating power. It can be produced by processing LNG or as a by-product of industrial facilities, including petrochemical plants.
Nearly 3,000 hydrogen fuel cell cars were on the road as of last month, a sharp increase from around 900 units posted in December.
