      UNECE R 134 Certificaton
      First certified H₂ tank with 700 bar and 350 litres is now approved for on-road use

      For hydrogen tanks to be released on the road, the law defines that they must be certified beforehand. In Europe, type approval on H₂ tank systems is governed by the regulation UNECE R 134. Now, for the first time, a Type IV 700 bar and 350 litre hydrogen capacity tank has been approved for road use under the guidelines of the United Nations Economic Commission for Europe.
