HOOKED ON HY­DRO­GEN

Toyota Connect/Lexus Life - - ON THE MOVE -

Con­ven­tional fork­lifts op­er­at­ing in Toy­ota’s man­u­fac­tur­ing plants are be­ing re­placed with fuel cell ver­sions to meet the Plant Zero CO2 Emis­sions Chal­lenge. Al­ready 22 fu­el­cell fork­lifts are in use at the Mo­tomachi Plant in Toy­ota City, Ja­pan, with a hy­dro­gen sta­tion to re­fuel them.

Us­ing hy­dro­gen to gen­er­ate elec­tric­ity is bet­ter for the en­vi­ron­ment, as it doesn’t emit CO2 or other sub­stances of con­cern. It also sup­plies elec­tric­ity to serve as a source of power dur­ing emer­gen­cies.
