In a real-life situation, every morning, at a bus transit facility in Canton, over a dozen buses pull up to a fuelling station before they head out to other routes in the city located south of Cleveland.
In fact, the bus manufactured by El Dorado National and owned and operated by the Stark Area Regional Transit Authority look like any other buses. Yet, the look of the buses reflect cutting edge of technology that could later, in a way play a key role to produce cleaner transportation within the city.
Importantly, one fourth of the buses operated by the agency run on hydrogen in place of pollution-laden diesel. The use of hydrogen only emits harmless water vapor.
Hydrogen that is abundantly available in the universe is increasingly being associated with electric vehicles. It is viewed to slow the destructive impact of the 1.2 billion vehicles of the planet on the environment, most of which currently run on diesel fuel and gasoline.
Meanwhile, manufacturers of commercial vehicles and trucks are beginning to adopt hydrogen fuel cell technologies as a way for the future. Makers of planes, passenger vehicles, and trains are planning on the same lines.
In the U.S., transportation is the single biggest contributor of climate change. This is the reason, in the long run, hydrogen is viewed as a potentially important alternative to help curb carbon emissions.
Nonetheless, hydrogen is far from being a magic solution. In fact, the global production of hydrogen each year is mainly for the manufacture of fertilizers and refineries. The process, however, pollutes the air, to cause warming the planet instead of saving it.
