Lombardia & Rhein-Main towards Zero Emission: Development & Demonstration of Infrastructure Systems for Alternative Motor Fuels (Bio-fuels and Hydrogen)

Objective

With an overall objective of developing low-emission transport systems for European cities, the specific objectives of the project 'ZERO REGIO' are:
- Use of hydrogen as an alternative motor fuel, produced as primary or waste stream in a chemical plant or via on-site production facilities
- Development of infrastructure systems for alternative motor fuels (bio-fuels & hydrogen) and integrating them in conventional refuelling stations
- Adaptation and demonstration of 700 bar refuelling technology for hydrogen
- Demonstration of high blends of bio-fuels in fuel flexible vehicles
- Demonstration of alternative fuels via. automobile-fleet field tests at two different urban locations in the EU, Rhein-Main, Germany and Lombardia, Italy
- Showing ways and prospects for faster penetration of low-emission alternative motor fuels in the market at short and medium term.

Fuel sources are available at locations near the envisaged refuelling stations.
