The objective of the project is to develop natural gas refueling stations costing $500 per station taking 1 hour refueling time, thereby allowing them to be installed at homes.

GE Global Research chemical engineer and project leader Anna Lis Laursen, speaking on the project, said that new technologies will reduce costs of natural gas refueling and consequently increase the usage of vehicles fueled by alternative fuels.

"By reducing the time and cost of re-fueling, we can break down the barriers that are preventing more widespread adoption of NG vehicles," added Laursen.

GE, in addition to handling the overall design integration will also share the costs of the project with ARPA-E.
Chart Industries and University of Missouri work on the engineering, cost and manufacturability of the system components.
