Through this strategic partnership, Hyzon and New Way have successfully brought to fruition the hydrogen fuel cell electric refuse collection vehicle, catering to the needs of the North American waste and recycling sector.

Visitors to booth #1341 at Waste Expo will have the opportunity to witness firsthand the concept of the hydrogen-powered electric refuse collection vehicle. Hyzon’s robust hydrogen fuel cells boast the capability to deliver consistent power for over 125 miles, facilitating up to 1,200 cart lifts and trips to the transfer station. Paired with the strength and durability of New Way’s acclaimed automated side loader – the Sidewinder XTR™ – featuring smooth arm operation, a reach of up to 12 feet, and a spacious 6-cubic-yard hopper, this collaboration presents an unstoppable and sustainable solution for refuse collection.

The booth will also feature a 200kw fuel cell display, complemented by an animation illustrating the functionality of hydrogen fuel cell technology, along with a comprehensive fact sheet detailing the specifications of the New Way and Hyzon Fuel Cell Electric Vehicle (FCEV).

Looking ahead, both New Way and Hyzon are eager to continue advancing technology and performance with the Class 8 FCEV, leveraging insights gathered from customer demonstrations scheduled throughout the remainder of 2024. Following Waste Expo, the truck will undergo testing on routes in California, commencing with Recology, a San Francisco-based hauler renowned for its commitment to sustainable operations. Recology, an employee-owned solid waste and recycling collection and processing company, has a longstanding dedication to sustainable transportation. Having recently achieved its goal of powering its fleet with over 90 percent renewable or alternative fuels, Recology views the demonstration of this groundbreaking hydrogen-powered truck as an opportunity to lead the industry in decarbonization efforts.
