  • Date 5 May 2021

Leveraging Ricardo’s 100 year track record in engine development, the hydrogen engine could provide cost-effective, clean, trusted technology to decarbonise heavy duty vehicles which currently contribute a quarter of all on-highway transportation CO2 emissions across the European Union.
