Through a new Cooperative Research and Development Agreement, GM and TARDEC will jointly test new hydrogen fuel cell-related materials and designs to evaluate their performance and durability before assembling them into full scale fuel cell propulsion systems.
September 16, 2013 /3BL Media/ - Leonardo Academy has released two new case studies highlighting the benefits of replacing diesel-fueled trucks with trucks that run on compressed natural gas (CNG). These case studies list real-world reductions in pollutants that will be achieved by removing older diesel trucks from America’s roadways.
Ongoing public concerns about climate change, energy security and economic conditions keep energy use and greenhouse gas emissions top of mind for our key stakeholders.
Energy is the third largest draw on our operating costs behind wood fiber and chemicals.
As such, we hold a long-standing commitment to control energy usage. Environmental impact is affected not only by the amount of energy, but also by the type of energy consumed. SFPNA has made significant effort to reduce our reliance on fossil fuels to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and to separate our operations from the volatility of energy prices.
Toyota's approach to future transportation focuses on developing technologies to meet the world's mobility needs sustainably. We deployed hydrogen fuel cell vehicles as part of a national demonstration program because we believe hydrogen holds great potential as a clean, renewable fuel.
