Air Products and Chemicals Inc., manufacturer of gases and headquartered in Trexlertown, creates products for energy, healthcare, technology, and other heavy industrial uses. The company has studied the use of hydrogen fuel for train transportation.

Air Products recently received over $200,000 from Pennsylvania for the next phase of the pilot demonstration, which is part of the state's Act 13 Alternative Fuel Incentive Grants.

Governor Tom Corbett, announced earlier this week, that Air Products will receive the funding as part of $2 million that will be distributed for alternative fuel programs.

A portion of the distribution, over $1 million, will be given to GE Transportation in Erie County, to adapt a locomotive to use the hydrogen fuel.

The success of this pilot will help PA determine how viable the use of liquid natural gas would be as an alternative fuel for train transportation.
