Hydrogen-powered vehicles: A realistic path to clean energy?

by Mark Gillispie and Tom Krisher

Each morning at a transit facility in Canton, Ohio, more than a
dozen buses pull up to a fueling station before fanning out to
their routes in this city south of Cleveland.

The buses—made by El Dorado National and owned by the Stark Area
Regional Transit Authority—look like any others. Yet
collectively, they reflect the cutting edge of a technology that
could play a key role in producing cleaner inter-city
transportation. In place of pollution-belching diesel fuel,
one-fourth of the agency's buses run on hydrogen. They emit
nothing but harmless water vapor.

Hydrogen, the most abundant element in the universe, is
increasingly viewed, along with electric vehicles, as one way to
slow the environmentally destructive impact of the planet's 1.2
billion vehicles, most of which burn gasoline and diesel fuel.
Manufacturers of large trucks and commercial vehicles are
beginning to embrace hydrogen fuel cell technologies as a way
forward. So are makers of planes, trains and passenger vehicles.

Transportation is the single biggest U.S. contributor to climate
change, which is why hydrogen power, in the long run, is seen as
a potentially important way to help reduce carbon emissions.

To be sure, hydrogen remains far from a magic solution. For now,
the hydrogen that is produced globally each year, mainly for
refineries and fertilizer manufacturing, is made using natural
gas or coal. That process pollutes the air, warming the planet
rather than saving it. Indeed, a new study by researchers from
Cornell and Stanford universities found that most hydrogen
production emits carbon dioxide, which means that hydrogen-fueled
transportation cannot yet be considered clean energy.

Yet proponents of hydrogen-powered transportation say that in the
long run, hydrogen production is destined to become more
environmentally safe. They envision a growing use of electricity
from wind and solar energy, which can separate hydrogen and
oxygen in water. As such renewable forms of energy gain broader
use, hydrogen production should become a cleaner and less
expensive process.

Within three years, General Motors, Navistar and the trucking
firm J.B. Hunt plan to build fueling stations and run hydrogen
trucks on several U.S. freeways. Toyota, Kenworth and the Port of
Los Angeles have begun testing hydrogen trucks to haul goods from
ships to warehouses.

Volvo Trucks, Daimler Trucks AG and other manufacturers have
announced partnerships, too. The companies hope to commercialize
their research, offering zero-emissions trucks that save money
and meet stricter pollution regulations.

In Germany, a hydrogen-powered train began operating in 2018, and
more are coming. French-based Airbus, the world's largest
manufacturer of airliners, is considering hydrogen as well.

"This is about the closest I've seen us get so far to that real
turning point," said Shawn Litster, a professor of mechanical
engineering at Carnegie Mellon University who has studied
hydrogen fuel cells for nearly two decades.

Hydrogen has long been a feedstock for the production of
fertilizer, steel, petroleum, concrete and chemicals. It's also
been running vehicles for years: Around 35,000 forklifts in the
United States, about 4% of the nation's total, are powered by
hydrogen. Its eventual use on roadways, to haul heavy loads of
cargo, could begin to replace diesel-burning polluters.

No one knows when, or even whether, hydrogen will be adopted for
widespread use. Craig Scott, Toyota's head of advanced technology
in North America, says the company is perhaps two years from
having a hydrogen truck ready for sale. Building more fueling
stations will be crucial to widespread adoption.

Kirt Conrad, CEO of Canton's transit authority since 2009, says
other transit systems have shown so much interest in the
technology that SARTA takes its buses around the country for
demonstrations. Canton's system, which bought its first three
hydrogen buses in 2016, has since added 11. It's also built a
fueling station. Two California transit systems, in Oakland and
Riverside County, have hydrogen buses in their fleets.

"We've demonstrated that our buses are reliable and
cost-efficient, and as a result, we're breaking down barriers
that have slowed wider adoption of the technology," Conrad said.

The test at the Port of Los Angeles started in April, when the
first of five semis with Toyota hydrogen powertrains began
hauling freight to warehouses in Ontario, California, about 60
miles away. The $82.5 million public-private project eventually
will have 10 semis.

Hydrogen fuel is included in President Joe Biden's plans to cut
emissions in half by 2030. The infrastructure bill the Senate
approved passed this week includes $9 billion for research to
reduce the cost of making clean hydrogen, and for regional
hydrogen manufacturing hubs.

The long-haul trucking industry appears to be the best bet for
early adoption of hydrogen. Fuel cells, which convert hydrogen
gas into electricity, provide a longer range than
battery-electric trucks, fare better in cold weather and can be
refueled much faster than electric batteries can be recharged.
Proponents say the short refueling time for hydrogen vehicles
gives them an edge over electric vehicles for use in taxis or
delivery trucks, which are in constant use.

That advantage was important for London-based Green Tomato Cars,
which uses 60 hydrogen fuel cell-powered Toyota Mirai cars in its
500-car zero emission fleet to transport corporate customers.
Co-founder Jonny Goldstone said his drivers can travel over 300
miles (500 kilometers) on a tank and refuel in three minutes.

Because drivers' earnings depend on fares, Goldstone said, "if
they have to spend 40, 50 minutes, an hour, two hours plugging a
car in in in the middle of the working day, that for them is just
not acceptable."

For now, Green Tomato is among the largest operators of hydrogen
vehicles in what is still a tiny market in Europe, with about
2,000 fuel cell cars, garbage trucks and delivery vans on the

About 7,500 hydrogen fuel cell cars are on the road in the U.S.,
mostly in California. Toyota, Honda and Hyundai produce the cars,
which are priced thousands more than gasoline-powered vehicles.
California has 45 public fueling stations, with more planned or
under construction.

Unlike with buses and heavy trucks, experts say the future of
passenger vehicles in the U.S. lies mainly with electric battery
power, not hydrogen. Fully electric vehicles can travel farther
than most people need to go on a relatively small battery.

And for now, hydrogen production is adding to rather than
reducing pollution. The world produces about 75 million tons a
year, most of it in a carbon emission-creating processes
involving steam reformation of natural gas. China uses
higher-polluting coal.

So-called "blue" hydrogen, made from natural gas, requires an
additional step. Carbon dioxide emitted in the process is sent
below the earth's surface for storage. The Cornell and Stanford
study found that manufacturing blue hydrogen emitted 20% more
carbon than burning natural gas or coal for heat.

That's why industry researchers are focused on electrolysis,
which uses electricity to separate hydrogen and oxygen in water.
Hydrogen mixes with oxygen in a vehicle's fuel cell to produce
power. The amount of electricity generated by wind and solar is
growing worldwide, making electrolysis cleaner and cheaper, said
Joe Cargnelli, director of hydrogen technologies for Cummins,
which makes electrolyzers and fuel cell power systems.

Currently, it costs more to make a hydrogen truck and produce the
fuel than to put a diesel-powered truck on the road. Hydrogen
costs about $13 per kilogram in California, and 1 kilogram can
deliver slightly more energy than a gallon of diesel fuel. By
contrast, diesel fuel is only about $3.25 per gallon in the U.S.

But experts say that disparity will narrow.

"As they scale up the technology for production, the hydrogen
should come down," said Carnegie Mellon's Litster.

While a diesel semi can cost around $150,000 depending on how
it's equipped, it's unclear how much fuel cell trucks would cost.
Nikola, a startup electric and hydrogen fuel cell truck maker,
estimated last year that it would receive about $235,000 for each
hydrogen semi it sells.

Clean electricity might eventually be used to make and store
hydrogen at a rail yard, where it could refuel locomotives and
semis, all with zero emissions.

Cummins foresees the widespread use of hydrogen in the U.S. by
2030, sped by stricter diesel emissions regulations and
government zero-emissions vehicle requirements. Already, Europe
has set ambitious green hydrogen targets designed to accelerate
its use.

"That's just going to blow the market open and kind of drive it,"
Cargnelli said. "Then you'll see other places like North America
kind of follow suit."
