FirstElement Fuel will open what it is calling the world’s first heavy-duty high-flow hydrogen fueling facility to the public in May. The station is the first of about a dozen commercial hydrogen truck fueling locations the company has planned.

“This is the first time that there is truly a commercially available hydrogen station,” said Ghassan Sleiman, chief technology officer for FirstElement Fuel.
