U.S. regional/commuter trains traveling relatively short distances are making progress on ZE (zero emission) initiatives. The technology under evaluation comes from numerous global sources. For ZE long-distance trains, battery-electric and HFC (hydrogen
By 2050, in accordance with the Paris Climate Agreement, zero-emission locomotives may have completely replaced conventional diesel-powered equipment on the railways of the world. Current development of zero-emission switcher locomotives, combined with
RAILWAY AGE, AUGUST 2021 ISSUE: The GEVO12-equipped, three-section 3TE25K2M is among the world’s most powerful diesel-electric locomotives.
Based on emerging technologies in batteries, hydrogen fuel cells and renewable natural gas, zero-emission motive power is a possibility.
