In the Netherlands, hydrogen fuel trains will soon begin to run, which only emits water during operation.
Successful tests passed last week – to test the safety of trains, they were tested at night without passengers.
Hydrogen-fueled trains will replace trains on diesel, fuel oil and other “dirty” fuels in areas where electricity cannot be supplied. While it is planned that they will walk in the area of the city of Groningen.
In hydrogen engines, a reaction occurs between the molecules of hydrogen and oxygen, resulting in the release of energy, which is used to start the engine, as well as water. No other harmful emissions are formed.
For Dutch trains, it is planned to use “green” sources, such as windmills and solar panels.
