BMW will convert landfill methane in to hydrogen
BMW is all set to research on extracting hydrogen from methane gas found in a specified local landfill.
BMW’s North American plant in Spartanburg, South Carolina, currently has a fleet of over 100 material handling vehicles that are powered by hydrogen.
It is one of the very few automobile plants that houses majority of the systems under a single roof.
The automaker hopes to build the infrastructure needed to power the entire fleet from hydrogen.
The plant already has hydrogen storage and a distribution area, which could be integrated into a full-scale version of the new project.
The project will cost a million dollars and will go through multiple phases.
The German automaker had actually saved $5 million per year after the implementation of high efficient technology.
