Sprinkler trucks across China are about to be revolutionized with non-polluting drivetrains. Sanitation vehicles typically cleanse city streets during the warmer months, but emissions from conventional diesel models are an unwanted and concentrated atmospheric burden, particularly because of the need for slow operation.
Manufactured by FAW, the 18T sprinkler has been reinvented by REFIRE to incorporate a zero emissions hydrogen-electric powertrain. When hydrogen fuel cells combine hydrogen and fresh air to produce on-demand electric power, the only by-product is pure water. Additionally, the low noise produced by the upgraded vehicles is a valuable benefit to urban residents.
