Hyzon deploys hydrogen-powered waste collection truck in commercial trial with Remondis

Hyzon Motors, a hydrogen fuel cell technology developer and global supplier of zero-emission heavy-duty fuel cell electric vehicles (FCEVs), announced the commercial trial deployment of its first Heavy Rigid fuel cell electric waste collection truck to Remondis Australia, one of the world’s largest recycling, service, and water companies.


The commercial trial is expected to convert to a full vehicle purchase if certain trial performance targets are met.

Hyzon developed its Heavy Rigid truck in Australia as a global platform, adaptable for international markets with a multitude of vehicle use cases, such as garbage compactors, tilt trays, and flatbed trucks.

Development of the Heavy Rigid program in Australia has allowed Hyzon to tap into highly skilled local engineering and technical knowledge to build a team, process, and product for Hyzon’s targeted US and global markets. Building on the back of this ISO-certified Australian developed platform, the first US FCEV waste collection vehicle is in assembly, readying for expected customer trials in the US in 1H 2024.

Remondis operates in more than 30 countries globally, with 39 business locations around Australia servicing more than 24,000 Australian commercial, industrial, and municipal customers. The waste collection truck will service the Wollongong and Shellharbour municipalities, operating from Remondis’ Wollongong facility in New South Wales.

Hyzon’s heavy-duty waste collection truck was designed against the industry benchmark of a 200-kilometer (125-mile) range and 1500 bin lifts per working day. The truck has been developed in partnership with Superior Pak, Australia’s leading manufacturer of world class mobile waste collection and compaction equipment.

The truck is in service and on the road in New South Wales now.
