Cheshire East and Storengy secure funding to fuel first bin wagons with green hydrogen


Cheshire East Council and Storengy have joined forces and secured funding towards a £1m scheme which will see bin wagons converted to take home-produced hydrogen.

The scheme comprised of both public and private sector money – with a £345,000 contribution from the local enterprise partnership’s Local Growth Fund – will see the first green hydrogen fuelling facility in the North West of England, bringing carbon and air quality benefits to Cheshire East.
