Hydrogen Vehicle Refueling Is Coming To The Middle East

Abu Dhabi National Oil Company is constructing a high-speed refueling station in Masdar City.



hydrogen vehicle refueling is coming to the middle east

As the Middle East undergoes a significant transition away from oil-based energy production, new technologies are required to meet growing demands. At the forefront of this enormous task is clean hydrogen production and delivery.

In a bid to ramp up sustainable fuel distribution and aid decarbonization, the Abu Dhabi National Oil Company (ADNOC) has announced plans to construct the Middle East’s first hydrogen refueling station in Masdar City. The high-speed refueling station will produce clean hydrogen from water using an electrolyzer powered by renewable electricity.

ADNOC has also entered a strategic partnership with Toyota and Al-Futtaim Motors to test the refueling station using a fleet of hydrogen-powered cars. The collaborative effort aims to assess the performance of this eco-friendly fuel and gather data to support the development of a UAE-wide hydrogen infrastructure.

His Excellency Dr. Sultan Ahmed Al Jaber, Minister of Industry and Advanced Technology and ADNOC Managing Director and Group CEO, said: “The need to reduce carbon emissions to address climate change is clear and urgent. ADNOC is placing sustainability and decarbonization at the heart of its strategy, and while we decarbonize our operations today, we are making robust investments to be a supplier of choice for the clean energies of tomorrow”.

The pilot program will help the Abu Dhabi National Oil Company gain insights into the potential of high-speed hydrogen refueling for mobility projects, aligning well with the UAE’s National Hydrogen Strategy, which will position the Emirates as a leading global producer of clean hydrogen by 2031.

Adobe Teases New AI Editing Tools And Updates In Premiere Pro

The video editing app will be enhanced with a generative extend tool, text-to-video, improved timeline waveforms, and more.



adobe teases new ai editing tools and updates in premiere pro

After launching the generative AI model Firefly last year, Adobe is now showcasing how the technology will be used in upcoming versions of the editing app Premiere Pro. In an early sneak peek, the company demonstrated several new features, including Object Addition and Removal, Generative Extend, and Text to Video.

The first new feature, Generative Extend, targets a common video editing problem by using AI to “Seamlessly add frames to make clips longer, so it’s easier to perfectly time edits and add smooth transitions”.

Meanwhile, Premiere Pro’s Object Addition & Removal tool will leverage Firefly’s generative AI to “Simply select and track objects, then replace them. Remove unwanted items, change an actor’s wardrobe or quickly add set dressings such as a painting or photorealistic flowers on a desk,” Adobe states.

Adobe also showcased another new feature that can automatically generate new film clips using a text prompt. To use the content creation tool, editors can “Simply type text into a prompt or upload reference images. These clips can be used to ideate and create storyboards, or to create B-roll for augmenting live action footage,” Adobe explained. The company seems to be commercializing this particular feature extremely quickly, considering generative AI video only appeared a few months ago.

The new additions to Premiere Pro will be added later this year, but Adobe is also introducing smaller improvements to the editing app in May. The changes include interactive fade handles to enable easier transitions, an Essential Sound badge that uses AI to “automatically tag audio clips as dialogue, music, sound effects or ambience, and add a new icon so editors get one-click, instant access to the right controls for the job”, along with effect badges and a new look for waveforms in the timeline.
