First Hydrogen Powered Train in Germany
Hydrogen trains are outfitted with fuel cells, which produce electricity through a combination of hydrogen(H2) and oxygen(O2), a process that leaves steam and water as the only emissions. The Excess energy is stored in ion-lithium batteries on board the train. The Coradia iLint trains can run for around 1000 kilometers by using a single tank of hydrogen, similar to the range of diesel trains. Alstom is betting on the technology as a greener, quieter alternative to diesel on non-electrified railway lines ( an attractive prospect to many German cities scrambling to combat air pollution).
Other countries are also looking into Hydrogen-powered trains
Other countries are also looking into hydrogen trains, Alstom said, including Britain, the Netherlands, Denmark, Norway, Italy, and Canada. In France, the country’s government has already said it wants the first hydrogen train to be on the run by 2022.
