Quarrying and aggregates company Tarmac has begun trialling hydrogen powered vehicles at its Cavenham site in Suffolk, to test their performance against petrol and electric vehicles.
Tarmac is working alongside fuel company ITM Power to carry out the site trials using a transportable hydrogen refuelling station.
Tarmac director of sustainability Martyn Kenny said the company had a commitment to reducing its carbon emissions.
“It is important that we test the performance and viability of the latest alternative fuels, like this hydrogen vehicle,” he said. “The results of this trial will help us to make informed decisions about our fleet in the future.”
