PHAEDRUS addresses a new concept and new technologies for a hydrogen retail refuelling system. The major objective is to develop and validate a new concept for 70 MPa hydrogen refuelling retail stations by showing the applicability of electrochemical hydrogen compression technology in combination with a PEM electrolyser, storage units and dispensing system.
The applicability will be demonstrated in a fuelling system producing 5 kg hydrogen per day, while a design is made for a fuelling system capable of producing 200 kg hydrogen per day. Safety aspects, efficiency and economic viability of the system’s components will be analysed and validated as well. In the project structure is explained how the results have been accomplished.

The European Union and the major car manufacturers are aiming towards making hydrogen cars commercially available together with an adequate hydrogen fuelling infrastructure. The consortium encompasses the complete value-chain for an innovative hydrogen refuelling station; from a hydrogen producer to the automotive industry.
