Global power leader Cummins Inc. will bring to market a new 15-liter natural gas engine for heavy-duty trucks for customers looking to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and improve air quality.
The engine is part of the company’s expanding product line to achieve Cummins’ PLANET 2050 environmental strategy, which includes lowering emissions from the company’s newly sold products by 30% by 2030 and reaching carbon neutrality by 2050. The strategy aligns with the targets in the Paris Climate Accords.
Cummins Inc.’s HyLYZER electrolyzer, the cornerstone of the largest proton exchange membrane (PEM) electrolyzer system in operation in the world, is the star of a new video explaining how its ability to produce hydrogen is a beacon for a low-carbon future.
Cummins wants to reach carbon neutrality by 2050 by offering customers a variety of power platforms so they can choose the technology that best works for their sustainability goals.
Global power leader Cummins Inc. has been awarded a nearly $5 million grant from the U.S. Department of Energy to develop technology critical to efficiently delivering energy from batteries to the motor in zero-emission vehicles.
Cummins Inc. has made another critical step toward reaching its climate goals and a decarbonized future, as the company was awarded $5 million from the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) Hydrogen and Fuel Cell Technologies Office, for the automation of solid oxide electrolyzer cell (SOEC) and stack assembly.
This award allows Cummins to further its efforts as a leader in alternative power and a pioneer in green hydrogen technologies.
Global power leader Cummins Inc. is accelerating its work on internal combustion engines fueled by low-carbon hydrogen.
The company has announced it will begin development of medium and heavy duty engines using the promising fuel. The initiative has tremendous potential for addressing the world’s climate challenges if the hydrogen employed is produced using electricity generated from renewable sources of energy.
Cummins Inc. electrolyzers producing low-carbon green hydrogen are part of an innovative effort in Germany to create a carbon neutral urban neighborhood.
The Neue Weststadt (New West Town) neighborhood is in Esslingen, Germany, a city of more than 90,000 people in the southern part of the country. The neighborhood spans over 100,000 square meters with over 450 apartments, office buildings and commercial space. According to officials, a neighborhood of this nature, on a converted freight yard and some three years in the making, has never been attempted before.
Cummins Inc. is the only company in the world powering hydrogen trains in commercial operation. In 2016, Cummins partnered with Alstom, a French railway equipment manufacturer, to engineer, supply, and integrate the hydrogen fuel cell solution in its Coradia iLint trains. The trains entered commercial service in 2018 and can carry up to 150 seated passengers and 150 standing passengers.
Gymnastics gold medalist Suni Lee isn’t the only one in her family who demonstrated incredible perseverance to achieve a goal.
Lee’s father John, a Cummins Power Systems product engineer from Shoreview, Minnesota, has returned to work after falling while helping a friend trim a tree in 2019. The fall left him paralyzed from the chest down.
The partnership behind the development of what will be one of the world’s largest electrolyzer plants in Spain will help position Cummins Inc. to be a European leader in green hydrogen production, company officials say.
