In the summer of 2020, The Port of Los Angeles received 10 heavy-duty trucks, each having one defining component in common: a hydrogen fuel cell.

The 10-truck effort for hydrogen power was supported by a California government grant known as ZANZEFF  – or Zero- and Near Zero-Emission Freight Facilities.

Employing hydrogen fuel cell technology allows heavy-duty trucks to operate in way where their only emission is clean, pure water – an important idea as vehicle manufacturers look for greener designs.

“It’s truly a great sight to witness a zero-emission truck,” Rovik said in a live presentation on TechBriefs.com this month.

But internal combustion engines – and the gas stations supporting them – are still fixed aspects of today’s energy infrastructure. Are Hydrogen Fuel Cells the Future?
