In China launched the first tram on hydrogen fuel

The Creation of vehicles that use as source of energy alternative fuels is an extremely promising development. And it is not always about using electricity. For example, recently in China, in Tangshan city of Hebei province into commercial operation launched the world's first tram that uses as fuel hydrogen.

A new vehicle, according to the Xinhua news Agency. For the development of said Corporation, China Railway Rolling Corporation (CRRC). As reported in a press release, the tram does not emit any polluting substances. This was achieved due to the fact that the temperature inside the fuel elements that are involved in energy production, below 100 degrees Celsius, therefore, harmful nitrogen oxide is formed. The only substance released into the atmosphere, is water. Refueling vehicle "to a full tank" lasts about 15 minutes, fuel will be enough to overcome 40 kilometers, and the maximum possible speed of the tram is 70 kilometers per hour. In addition, the distance between the floor of the car and rails is just 35 inches, which allows you to remove the platform to simplify and speed up the boarding of passengers into the cars.

It is Worth noting that despite the fact that China first launched the public transport on hydrogen fuel, the technology of obtaining this cheap fuel didn't belong to him. It was introduced in September 2014 by the Swiss scientists, and December of the same year, Toyota announced the start of production of cars using as fuel hydrogen.
