Air Liquide Advanced Technologies on Monday said it completed installing a hydrogen fueling station in in Hartford's North Meadows section.

The French supplier of industrial gases and services said its Hartford facility is part of a nationwide effort to build fueling stations in Mansfield, Mass., Providence, Hempstead, N.Y., Palo Alto and Los Angeles, Calif.

Air Liquide, partnering with Toyota, previously announced plans to build one filling and distribution center and 12 fueling stations across the country.

The company said hydrogen offers a clean transportation alternative as it does not generate pollution during use in electric vehicles.
