A significant step has been made in fuelling hydrogen buses on the streets of the UK with Ryse Hydrogen signing a three-year contract with Suttons Tankers to transport bulk hydrogen gas to different locations in the UK, starting with London.
Suttons will move the hydrogen, produced by Ryse Hydrogen in Runcorn, to the capital where Transport for London (TfL) will be operating 20 hydrogen-powered double-decker buses later this year.
