SubjectHydrogen trucking for transformative climate policy


As CARB considers multiple strategies to achieve California Carbon Neutrality, Hydron stands ready to assist in transformative change in the transportation industry by supplying Zero Emission, autonomous ready vehicles for long haul trucking. We are dedicated to solving one of the most difficult decarbonization problems - how to provide sufficient range, power, logistics, and uptime in the heavy-duty long-haul trucking sector, without increasing strain on the electrical grid.

Hydrogen trucking can replace diesel emissions with similar range and refueling profiles and higher uptimes. Hydron's contribution to the coming hydrogen economy will allow our vehicles to operate without the necessity of high current draw and long charging times typical of heavy-duty battery electric vehicles. Autonomous operation enables increased fuel and energy efficiency while at the same time reducing peak road demand with near continuous operation. Additionally, the reduction in criteria pollutants from diesel emissions is of specific interest to environmental justice communities who currently bear the brunt of PM, NOx, and other harmful emissions from heavy trucking.

Hydron looks forward to participating in future CARB programs to demonstrate the ways that our platform can assist CARB in achieving the lofty goals of the 2022 scoping plan.
