"Zero emission hydrogen fuel cell technology is the key to reducing emissions from many hard-to-abate industries, including refuse collection," said Hyzon CEO, Parker Meeks. "Hyzon is primed to begin this partnership with New Way as we pursue a shared goal of decarbonising the refuse industry. The operational capabilities of our Australian fuel cell refuse collection truck trial helped demonstrate that hydrogen fuel cell technology is a viable replacement for traditional diesel engines when it comes to heavy industry, and overcomes some of the inherent challenges identified with other zero emission technologies such as range anxiety, severe operating temperatures, and payload limitations."
Hyzon and New Way plan to start the advanced phases of truck development, with the initial base FCEV prototype ready for refuse collection equipment integration. Hyzon will be responsible for the supply and integration of its advanced fuel cell technology and integrated powertrain, while New Way will be responsible for the supply and integration of the prototype's Sidewinder XTR automated side-load refuse body, thereby combining both companies' expertise to develop a sustainable refuse collection solution. The development process is expected to leverage Hyzon's real-world experience developing, assembling and deploying a hydrogen fuel cell refuse truck in operation since October 2023 in Australia with REMONDIS Australia, the Australian operation of one of the world's largest recycling, service and water companies.
"New Way has a successful history of deploying alternative powertrain refuse equipment across North America," said Don Ross, New Way's Chief Sales Officer. "Partnering with Hyzon to bring the continent's first Class 8 FCEV refuse collection vehicle to life is a significant step in helping our customers meet their sustainability and decarbonisation objectives."
