Wuppertal, a city in the North Rhine-Westphalia region of western Germany, has had a history of pioneering transportation technology since the construction of the suspended railway in the late 1800s. The ‘Schwebebahn’ suspended monorail is still in operation today.
A century later, Wuppertal is putting itself on the map for its innovative approach to mobility, with the implementation of a fleet of fuel cell electric buses, powered by the green hydrogen generated from the incineration of municipal waste.
Will Görtz leads the projects department at AWG Abfallwirtschaftsgesellschaft mbH (AWG) in Wuppertal, the city’s waste collection and disposal organisation, and told H2 View, “We need to decarbonise fully by 2050 and that’s really not far off. We must get started right now with ambitious projects that can be replicated and scaled.”
