ULEMCo reports emissions saving from its dual-fuel hydrogen-powered sweeper

UK-based ULEMCo has today (July 20) reported that its dual-fuel hydrogen-powered road sweeper has demonstrated reductions in carbon dioxide emissions through its deployment for Aberdeen City Council, Scotland.

Converted by ULEMCo to run on dual-fuel, allowing hydrogen to be burned directly in combination with diesel, the vehicle took to the streets of Aberdeen at the start of 2022, and according to the company, has saved the annual equivalent of around three tonnes of carbon dioxide emissions so far.

The sweeper project was announced in November 2020, where ULEMCo, JCB and Bucher Municipal joined forces to develop the hydrogen-powered vehicle. According to ULEMCo, the technology could reduce Aberdeen City Council’s carbon emissions by 30 tonnes a year, if applied to all its sweepers.
