Drupps is the first company to engage Sweden’s sole hydrogen taxi company, Uppsala-based H2CAB, to minimise CO₂ footprints while highlighting hydrogen as energy storage.
A hydrogen car works just like a normal car with a combustion engine, but instead of turning fossil fuels into CO₂, hydrogen and oxygen are turned into evaporative water. Hydrogen taxi company H2CAB was started in Uppsala in 2021, and Drupps is its first company customer.
Water company Drupps’ business centres on producing water from the atmosphere or industrial outlets to mitigate water scarcity. The energy bill is largely paid by the steam’s own vaporisation energy. The technology could be used with wind or solar power to turn water in dry places into hydrogen.
Drupps is a Swedish water innovation company specialising in generating water from the atmosphere and industrial outlets. The company helps processing industries improve water and energy efficiency.
Jonas Wamstad, CMO and co-founder at Drupps, said, “When hydrogen is used, evaporative water is generated, and the transformation of evaporative water back to its liquid form is exactly what we at Drupps are world-leading at. So we feel this partnership is just right. Now we wait for commercial hydrogen planes to appear.”
Edward Blomstrand, CEO and founder of H2CAB, said, “We are thrilled that Drupps likes what we do and the idea of hydrogen-powered travel. H2CAB is passionate about hydrogen as energy storage, and we will expand our fleet as interest for hydrogen continues to grow.”
