Revealed today (March 21), Pure Hydrogen will provide JJ’s Waste & Recycling with a hydrogen garbage truck and support the growing sector in Australia.
Not only will Pure Hydrogen provide the hydrogen truck, but the company will also additionally supply refuelling services in order to maintain the truck and keep its operations running smoothly.
This trial of the hydrogen-fuelled garbage truck will commence at the end of 2022 and take place in the South East region of Queensland.
Should the initial trials be a success it can be expected that further hydrogen-fuelled garbage trucks could enter the Australian roads and further decarbonise the mobility sector.
Scott Brown, Managing Director of Pure Hydrogen, said, “We are delighted to be partnering with JJ’s Waste to build Australia’s first ever hydrogen-fuelled garbage truck.
“We believe this the start of a new era for heavy commercial vehicles in Australia which will not only reduce 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. We see the business case for converting garbage trucks to hydrogen fuel cell trucks as very compelling and we are confident this trial will be a great success.”
