Hydrogen dual fuel truck

An affordable and reliable hydrogen powered solution for heavy road transport.


The challenge of energy transition

The energy transition will not happen overnight, but hydrogen represents a significant contribution to the process. How we use the molecule in heavy industry is less clear. Fuel cell technology is not the silver bullet to solve all problems associated with the use of hydrogen fuel. CMB.TECH is has developed this as a transition technology that is green, affordable, and reliable.

Dual fuel technology

CMB.TECH's dual fuel technology used for the hydrogen trucks is today's solution to enhance the transition towards a zero-emission society. It is based on the reliable ICE (Internal Combustion Engine) technology. Using the dual fuel technology, hydrogen is aspirated into the combustion chamber, requiring less diesel injection. It reduces emissions and generates the same engine power.

Advantages of the dual fuel technology

  • In addition to the direct CO₂ reduction due to the diesel displacement, significant NOx and PM emission reductions are achieved.
  • Guaranteed uptime: if hydrogen is not available, the truck continues to run on traditional fuel.
  • No compromise inrange (up to 1000 km in dual fuel mode with diesel back-up), payload and durability.
  • The hydrogen refuelling only takes 10 to 12 minutes.
  • The most robust and reliable solution for clean, long-haul transport of more than 400 km per day.

New diesel trucks are converted with CMB.TECH's dual fuel hydrogen technology at our Dual fuel workshop in Antwerp.


Hydrogen system

  • Full weight of the module is 1200kg.
  • 6x Type III tanks - total storage of 30kg of hydrogen at 350bar - R134 certified.
  • The system can continue on diesel if hydrogen runs out and no hydrogen refuelling station is available.
  • On diesel, the vehicle complies with the latest Euro 6 emission standards.
  • Hydrogen co-combustion has no compromise in range, payload, robustness, and durability, while having the ability to offer a great emission reduction on both CO₂, PM and NOx.
