Green energy companies ReCarbon and HYZON Motors partnered July 23 in an effort to propel hydrogen-powered truck projects globally.

ReCarbon is a Silicon Valley-based developer of proprietary greenhouse gas utilization technologies. HYZON Motors is a hydrogen fuel cell mobility company. Their partnership is aimed at deploying and commercializing biogas-to-hydrogen mobility projects for trucks and buses.

“We are pleased to collaborate with HYZON Motors to play a substantial role in the proliferation of green hydrogen mobility to holistically address the issue of carbon emissions, across the entire global heavy mobility sector,” ReCarbon CEO Jay Kim said in a statement.

HYZON is focused on accelerating adoption of zero-emission commercial vehicles, specifically medium- and heavy-duty trucks and buses. The company is currently working to deploy vehicles in Europe, Australia, New Zealand and the United States.

“Offering green hydrogen mobility as a service is the cornerstone mission of our company,” HYZON CEO George Gu said in a statement. “Our collaboration with ReCarbon creates an opportunity to provide this to fleet owners, to make the switch from diesel to hydrogen economically, while drastically reducing their carbon footprint from fuel to emissions.”

ReCarbon noted the new partnership is one of several initiatives on which it is working. It also developed a greenhouse gas utilization technology known as Plasma Carbon Conversion Units. Transport Topics
