WORLD'S CLEANEST BIN LORRY UNVEILED POWERED BY HYDROGEN

    WORLD’S CLEANEST BIN LORRY UNVEILED POWERED BY HYDROGEN

    A council has taken delivery of the world’s cleanest bin lorries – which are partly powered by thin air.

    The two Heil Farid trucks use a ground-breaking combination of hydrogen and diesel,

    They have been converted by Fife Council in Scotland and, if deemed successful, will become part of one of Europe’s largest fleet of hydrogen powered vehicles.

    Hydrogen power plants work by using a fuel cell to combine hydrogen and oxygen and are completely clean.

    Cllr Lesley Laird, depute leader and executive spokesperson for economy and planning at Fife Council said: “Fife’s leading the way in clean energy; we believe these two bin lorries
    are the first of their kind in the world.”

    The project received £4 million from the Scottish Government’s Local Energy Challenge Fund.
