The first European hydrogen
station installed along a highway is now open. The oil giant Total has opened the fuel kiosk along the Ruisbroek-Brussels highway in Belgium, and it is the first hydrogen dispensing station that is located in a place like "regular" ones. It's also the first hydrogen fuel station
built outside Germany. Although owned by Total, the station was also sponsored by BMW
, which must be glad to announce that lucky drivers of the BMW Hydrogen 7-series had another place to fill up with H2
. Brussels is not one of Europe's largest capital cities, but it is one of the most important ones thanks to the number of EU institution that it hosts.
