Hydrogen and fuel cells reduce CO2 emissions in material handling logistics by at least 60%.

Clean Intralogistics Net (CIN)

Fuel cell systems and hydrogen infrastructure for green logistics – Clean Intralogistics Net is an alliance of 14 companies that have set themselves the goal of making materials handling technologies and their infrastructure in industry and at airports lower in emissions and, in the long term, more economical:

  • AIR LIQUIDE Advanced Technologies GmbH
  • BMW Bayerische Motoren Werke AG
  • Bosch Engineering GmbH
  • Daimler AG
  • FES Ltd.
  • GLOBE Fuel Cell Systems GmbH
  • Heraeus Deutschland GmbH & Co. KG
  • Jungheinrich AG
  • Linde Material Handling GmbH
  • Linde AG – Gases Division
  • Plug Power Inc. Europe
  • Propan Rheingas GmbH & Co. KG
  • SCHAEFFLER AG
  • STILL GmbH
  • Toyota Material Handling GmbH

Synergy – By establishing the network, the CIN partners are creating the necessary platform for market activation of fuel cell powered industrial trucks, airport apron equipment and vehicles, and their hydrogen infrastructure.

Competition – Companies from the USA, Japan, Norway, Sweden and China are pushing full steam ahead with the development of green logistics using fuel cells. The users, suppliers and manufacturers of the Clean Intralogistics Net (CIN) network see this alliance as an opportunity to position competitive fuel cell systems “Made in Germany” worldwide.

CIN is supported by VDMA Fördertechnik und Intralogistik and the NOW working group “Hydrogen, Fuel Cells and Electromobility at Airports”. NOW GmbH accompanies the innovation cluster, EE Energy Engineers GmbH is administrator of the CIN cluster. The network is funded as an innovation cluster with funds from the BMDV under NIP II.

CIN spokespersons: Kai Hesse, Toyota Material Handling Deutschland GmbH (spokesperson) and Dr. Angelina Schenk, BMW Group (deputy spokesperson).

Applications

Mercedes-Benz plant Düsseldorf goes green!

Fuel cells use hydrogen as a fuel and combine the advantages of a diesel, such as operating hours and refueling infrastructure, with those of an electric drive, such as zero emissions and low noise.

Funding opportunities for forklifts – taking advantage of government subsidies for electric drives and CO2 savings

Electric forklifts and fuel cell forklifts contribute to CO2 savings and thus to the long-term decarbonization of the transport and logistics sector. For this reason, the federal government provides direct subsidies for the purchase of new industrial trucks as well as investments to replace old equipment.

BMW puts 70 more hydrogen route trains into operation in Leipzig

The consortium’s objective is to establish a future-proof, sustainable and at the same time economically efficient drive technology in the field of indoor logistics.
