BP and Daimler to work on transitioning trucks to hydrogen fuel
2
BP and Daimler plan to work jointly on speeding up the transition of truck transport to hydrogen fuel as well as the development of a network of hydrogen fuelling stations in Britain.

    Under the terms of a memorandum of understanding, BP is to assess the feasibility of designing, constructing, operating and supplying a network of up to 25 hydrogen refuelling stations across Britain by 2030. These stations would be supplied by BP with “green” hydrogen – generated from water using renewable energy sources.

   Daimler Truck expects to deliver hydrogen-powered fuel-cell trucks to its customers in Britain from 2025. It has expressed a preference for liquid hydrogen, which has a far higher energy density in relation to volume than gaseous hydrogen.

    The tanks of a fuel-cell truck using liquid hydrogen are therefore much smaller and, due to the lower pressure, significantly lighter. This gives the trucks more cargo space and a higher payload. It also means more hydrogen can be carried, which significantly increases the trucks’ range.

    BP intends to develop hydrogen refuelling stations in Europe and already has plans for stations in Germany.

    In Teesside, in northeastern England, BP has plans to build a hydrogen-producing facility which could produce 1GW of blue hydrogen, produced from natural gas, a facility to be integrated with carbon capture and storage.

Company plans production of zero-waste wind turbine blades

GE Renewable Energy has announced that it plans by 2030 to begin production of zero-waste wind turbine blades. Zero-waste production will be undertaken by the company’s affiliate, LM Wind Power, by overseeing purchases of necessary materials and pledging to “reuse, repurpose, recycle or recover all the excess materials from manufacturing of blades, giving up on landfilling and incineration as waste management solutions”.
