Hydrogen dual-fuel refuse trucks are a world first

ULEMCo, a company championing the use of ultra-low emission hydrogen fuelled vehicles, has delivered the world’s first hydrogen dual-fuel refuse trucks to Fife Council in Scotland, UK. The lorries are converted to run on dual hydrogen / diesel fuels, and will deliver reduced carbon emissions as well as improving air quality for the local community. The new trucks are planned for use in densely populated urban areas, where improving air quality is a huge concern.

The two Heil Farid vehicles have been adapted to run on both hydrogen and diesel. The work is part of a project that will also see the conversion of five Ford Transit vans and ten Renault HyKangoo vans to Hybrid Electric and Hydrogen Fuel Cell operation.

"Fife is leading the way in clean energy. We envisage Levenmouth Community Energy Partnership becoming home to one of Europe’s largest fleet of hydrogen dual-fuel vehicles," said Cllr Lesley Laird, deputy leader and executive spokesperson for Economy and Planning. "I want to thank the partnership for all their hard work bringing this innovative project to life."

"This is a global first for hydrogen vehicles and a really great example of the innovative approach that is needed to deliver the low carbon and low emission vehicles of the future," added Amanda Lyne, managing director of ULEMCo.

Last year, The Scottish Government recognised the importance of this project by awarding GB£4.3m from their Local Energy Challenge Fund. There will be hydrogen refuelling points at both the Hydrogen Office, Methil and at the Council’s depot at Bankhead, Glenrothes.
