Show Me the Road to Hydrogen

The University of Missouri-Rolla (UMR) and Ford Motor Company will demonstrate a commuter bus service and hydrogen refueling at a station in rural Missouri near Ft. Leonard Wood. Initiated by a request from the U.S. Army Maneuver Support Center (MANSCEN) at Ft. Leonard Wood (FLW), UMR is helping to establish a commuter service between FLW and the neighboring towns of Rolla and Lebanon each of which are located about 25 miles from the military base on Interstate-44. With funds provided by the Defense Logistics Agency through the Air Force Research Laboratory, this hydrogen initiative is seeking a partnership with an energy supplier to build and operate a hydrogen fueling facility that includes on-site generation of hydrogen through electrolysis as well as selling a range of other traditional and alternative fuels.
