ITM Power and Hardstaff to Develop HCNG Fuel System for Heavy Goods Vehicles

| United Kingdom

ITM Power, a clean fuel and energy storage company, and transport industry innovator The Hardstaff Group, have signed a Memorandum of Understanding to develop and market a Hydrogen Compressed Natural Gas (HCNG) fuel system for Heavy Goods Vehicles (HGVs). Natural Gas or Bio Methane may be combined at various ratios with hydrogen to produce HCNG, which, when burned, offers significant benefits in the emissions performance and efficiency of engines. These improvements in combustion not only reduce the tailpipe emissions of carbon dioxide, NOx, carbon monoxide and hydrocarbons but also allow for increased engine speed operation, enabling the downsizing of engines. Engine downsizing results in improved operational efficiency and reduced weight. Read more »
