Collection vehicle converted to dual fuel

In a first for the commercial waste sector, Grundon Waste Management has launched an ultra-low emission hydrogen-diesel waste collection vehicle, by converting one of its DAF waste wheelers into dual-fuel operation.

John Stephens, group logistics manager, said: “We see huge potential in this technology.

”What makes it especially compelling is that it may be possible in the future to power hydrogen-fuelled vehicles from hydrogen produced by waste treatment processes, creating a perfect example of the circular economy.”

The conversion of the DAF vehicle was undertaken by low-emission technology specialist ULEMCo. The project featured a modular approach, with ULEMCo deploying a 10kg hydrogen unit on the side of the vehicle.
