Investment in hydrogen trains is a vital part of the process to improve air quality, according to a new report by the Institution of Mechanical Engineers.
Hydrogen can be used as an alternative for fossil fuels as it produces water as waste emission at the point of use and is seen as a clean technology that can help decarbonise the railway industry and reduce emissions.
Around 29% of Britain’s fleet currently run only on diesel fuel which emits large concentrations of particulate matter, known to be damaging to health, particularly at enclosed stations.
PowerHouse Energy (LON:PHE) has developed a proprietary process technology called DMG® which can use waste plastic end-of-life-tyres and other waste streams to convert them into cost efficient energy in the form of electricity and ultra clean hydrogen gas fuel for use in cars and commercial vehicles (FCEV: Fuel Cell Electric Vehicles) and other industrial uses. The PowerHouse technology is the world’s first proven, modular hydrogen from waste (HfW) process.
