The French-based industrial gas company Air Liquide recently announced to team up with a Toyota subsidiary in order to build a network of fuel-cell filling stations in Japan.
With more than 60 hydrogen stations across the world, there are two hydrogen filling stations expected to be completed next year in Tokyo and a whole network of them in and between Tokyo, Nagoya, Osaka and Fukuoka to be ready the following year.

As the first production fuel-cell vehicles are expected to be offered for consumers in 2015, the Air Liquide - Toyota joint venture promises to build around 100 filling stations in and around major Japanese cities.

The advantages of fuel-cell vehicles are the zero emissions, extended range over conventional EVs as well as their refueling time, which revolves around 3-4 minutes for a full tank.
