Here comes innovation



Ultra-low emission vehicles

We have a globally unique service to convert commercial vehicles like refuse trucks to run on zero carbon hydrogen.

What prompted you to develop it?

The founders Paul and I have been working in the low carbon vehicle and new hydrogen economy industry for a significant part of our careers, and recognised the need for a product solution that was easy and cost effective for commercial vehicle owners to take up, in order to help them in their transition to decarbonised energy. Our approach enables them to have all their usual operational regimes at the same time as improving air quality emission, unlike other options which are either much more expensive, not available yet and need them to change behaviours.

Is it in production or use?

It’s in use in over 40 vehicles in the UK and some elsewhere in the world; including councils, major fleet operators and commercial waste collection businesses.

Who inspires you?

What do you hope to achieve in developing this innovation?

We hope that by providing an easy, almost drop in option for fleet operators to dramatically save carbon emissions, we will see wide scale adoption, quickly and so move what is considered a hard to decarbonise sector become a leading area of the economy that is rapidly reducing emissions.  The areas like Liverpool City Region where the freight and logistics sector is an important part of the economy this would help the local industry get ahead and have competitive advantage over other areas that don’t transition fast enough.
