The world's first autonomously powered vending machine that runs on hydrogen was unveiled at the recent NAMA (National Automatic Merchandising Association) Expo in St. Louis, MO, U.S. Vending machine OEM Jofemar (Navarra, Spain; www.jofemar.com) engineered the Vision Multiseller H2 to use hydrogen instead of electricity. A hydrogen fuel cell is fed with hydrogen from a portable Ovonic Solid Hydrogen Storage canister. The fuel cell has a back-up battery for when the portable hydrogen canister needs to be recharged.
