Hydrogen-diesel dual fuel engines for heavy-duty commercial vehicles: modelling and analysis

Modern commercial trucks are crucial for economic activity. The diesel engines in these vehicles emit about 8% of all CO2 emissions in Canada. To reduce the environmental impact of current trucks, Hydra Energy Inc. is developing an approach to replace some of the diesel fuel with excess hydrogen generated in industrial processes. To maximize the benefits of this approach, Hydra and SFU are working together to develop a model of the vehicle system. Using the model, the team will study how the vehicle will behave under different uses and will find ways to increase the amount of hydrogen used.

Toward Net Zero Transportation: Environmental benefits of Hydrogen-fuelled Trucks

Hydra Energy Corporation Commercial Demonstration Project based in Prince George, British Columbia 12.4 MT/day of waste hydrogen will be captured, purified and transported to an onsite hydrogen refueling station from which Class 8 tractor-trailer truck fleets will refuel daily. Hydra’s demonstration project can provide a significant reduction in fleet greenhouse gas(GHG) emissions, Particulate Matter and other air emissions.

Development and Demonstration Engine Technology for Class 8 Heavy Duty Trucks Fueled by Waste Hydrogen

Hydra Energy Corporation Commercial Demonstration Project will be based in Prince George, British Columbia 12.4 MT/day of waste hydrogen will be captured, purified and transported to an onsite hydrogen refueling station from which (at least) 53 Class 8 tractor-trailer trucks will refuel daily. Hydra’s demonstration project can provide a significant reduction in fleet greenhouse gas(GHG) emissions, Particulate Matter and other air emissions. Hydra is currently testing the first prototype dual-fuel hydrogen/diesel heavy-duty class 8 truck in North America.
