Pure Hydrogen debuts hydrogen powered waste truck

Hydrogen, gas and mobility business Pure Hydrogen has partnered with domestic waste collector JJ’s Waste & Recycling to trial Australia’s first-ever hydrogen fuelled garbage truck (pictured).

The trial with JJ’s Waste & Recycling, Australia’s largest privately-owned waste management company, will begin at the end of 2022 in South East Queensland and opens the way to the mass deployment of hydrogen fuelled garbage trucks.

JJ’s operates a 2,000 strong truck fleet and following the trial of the fuel cell side-lift vehicle, envisages a wet hire lease agreement with Pure Hydrogen to operate the vehicles.

Pure Hydrogen will supply ’emerald’ hydrogen made from waste via its east coast refuelling network.

Pure Hydrogen CEO Scott Brown said: “We believe this is the start of a new era for heavy commercial vehicles in Australia which will not only and fix fuel costs but be cleaner and greener for the Australian environment.

“It will also reduce our reliance on imported diesel by replacing it with hydrogen made in Australia.”

JJ’s national fleet manager Owen Burton said vehicle technology was changing rapidly and the company wanted to offer its customers the latest in environmentally friendly vehicles.
