Grundon launches low emission vehicle

Grundon Waste Management has launched an ultra-low emission hydrogen diesel dual-fuel collection vehicle.

Group logistics manager John Stephens said: “Converting one of our DAF waste wheelers into dual-fuel has been a significant investment for the business, but it is one we have been keen to make for the future of the environment. We see huge potential in this technology.”

Stephens said it might prove possible in future to power hydrogen-fuelled vehicles from hydrogen produced by waste treatment processes.

The conversion was undertaken by low emission technology specialist Ulemco and cost £177,000.

It used a 10kg hydrogen unit fitted onto the side of the vehicle.
