Landmark hydrogen bus development achieved in India featuring ‘world first’ technology

A new hydrogen-powered bus has been developed in India by an extensive collaboration between Sentient Labs, Council of Scientific and Industrial Research (CSIR) and National Chemical Laboratory (NCL).

The nine-meter, 32-seater, air-conditioned vehicle has been designed to provide a range of 450kms with 30kgs of hydrogen, presenting a great alternative to conventional buses which emit high amounts of carbon emissions.

Equipped with Sentient Lab’ “world first” technology, that generates hydrogen directly from agricultural reside for use in fuel cell-powered vehicles, the bus hopes to transform clean transportation both in India and elsewhere in the world.

The fuel cell utilises hydrogen and air to generate electricity to power the bus. The only effluent from the bus is water, therefore making it possibly the most environmentally friendly mode of transportation.
