Hydrogenics and General Motors of Canada will demonstrate a hydrogen fuel cell-powered Class I forklift as well as refueling of this vehicle at an onsite hydrogen station on 1 Feb. The H2 forklift project was funded by Sustainable Development Technology Canada (SDTC) and the Canadian Transportation Fuel Cell Alliance (CTFCA) .
Currently, industrial vehicles contribute almost 13% of the global total of transportation-related greenhouse gas emissions.
More details to come.
Several other Canadian fuel cell companies—General Hydrogen and Cellex—are also looking to industrial vehicles, specifically forklifts, as a natural fit for fuel cells.
