  • China is converting locomotives to run on hydrogen power, a clean and sustainable alternative to traditional fossil fuels.
  • Hydrogen locomotives use fuel cells and hydrogen tanks mounted on the roof of the train to produce electricity and water vapor through a reaction between hydrogen and oxygen.
