In the Low Emission Freight and Logistics Trial (LEFT), ULEMCo converted four refuse trucks, a road sweeper, a patient transport vehicle, four panel vans and a refrigerated van to run on hydrogen as a dual fuel. During the two-year trial period;
- nearly 60,000 km were covered;
- 1619 kgs of hydrogen used; and
- 14 tonnes of CO2 saved across the 11 vehicles.
One of the partners working with ULEMCo on the HyTIME project was Aberdeen City Council, which took delivery of the world’s first hydrogen dual fuel road sweeper, as well as two Merc Econic refuse trucks, and has gone on to put several more of these on the roads since. ULEMCo and partners are now calling for urgent infrastructure development. Read the official press release to find out more.
