As part of a unique public-private partnership, Norfolk Southern is helping communities enhance air quality with the development of a new class of low-emission rail yard locomotives dubbed the “Eco” locomotive.
In 2015, NS introduced the Eco units at its Inman Yard in Atlanta and at its 47th Street Intermodal Facility in Chicago. NS delivered 10 of the locomotives to Atlanta and 15 to Chicago.
Norfolk Southern is an industry leader in exploring alternative energy sources to reduce locomotive emissions. During 2015, NS made research gains in the use of battery technology and compressed natural gas in its quest to conserve fuel, reduce fuel costs, and lower greenhouse gas emissions.
Range of 500 km and fully suitable for everyday use: the new Mercedes GLC F-CELL combines two environmentally responsible drive technologies. A world first.
As the brand’s first production vehicle to feature a fuel-cell system when it comes onto the market next year, the Mercedes GLC F-CELL will connect – in a world first – two environmentally responsible technologies associated with the drive system via an electrical cable. For the first time, a vehicle with this powertrain system will have a plug for a supplementary lithium-ion energy storage unit. Rated at approximately nine kWh, the storage unit serves as an energy source for an additional electric motor and can be charged externally.
