In this opportunity I want you to meet Lynn Lyon to follow up on the market trends for Alternative Fuels. She is the Vice President of Strategic Marketing at Hexagon Lincoln and a true Energy Influencer with a huge background in the natural gas industry and a very big audience in social media.
We discuss about how interesting is being a part of the Hexagon group, a group very acknowledged by their experience with type IV carbon fiber cylinders, and how the main driver of these premium products is the great people behind it.
We go deep on the relevance of CNG in many different applications and the incipient market of Biomethane around Europe and America.
Also, we chat about the importance on Hydrogen in many different markets as a vehicle fuel and how Hexagon dedicates a lot of effort into developing breakthrough applications with an innovative approach.
We concluded that the alternative fuels industry is going to look very different of what we are used to see, in the way that there’s not going to be a silver bullet solution at all, but instead, the variations and alternatives of particular locations and its inherent advantages will shape the future of fuels for vehicles around the world.
