Race to Zero (R2Z): Hydrogen Fuel Cells Vehicles
ZERO EMISSION HYDROGEN FUEL CELL VEHICLES. Based on a case study of an end-to-end integrated ‘green’ hydrogen production and fueling of heavy-duty, off-road trucks for surface mining operations, Anglo-American has completed a year-long pilot project in South Africa of a hydrogen-powered ultra-class mining haul truck. Current plans include a VIP team Purdue Study Abroad trip during first two-weeks of August 2023 to the Anglo-American Quellaveco Copper Mining project located in the Moquegua region of Peru. The Quellaveco mine is the first 100% digital mining operation and 100% renewable energy powered surface mine in the world. Anglo-American is a global leader with their FutureSmart MiningTM which is transforming the very nature of mining for a safer, smarter, more sustainable future by bringing together technology and digitalization to drive sustainability outcomes
The team will review the concept of an autonomous remote microgrid that combines renewable energy with a hybrid energy storage system using both electrical battery energy storage and a hydrogen energy storage and introduce the 'Green Hydrogen' vision as a critical enabler of global transition to sustainable energy and net-zero emissions economy.
