Perth based Eden Energy, in conjunction with Hythane Company (a subsidiary of Eden Energy) and BAF Technologies, have received a $499,800 grant to acquire 14 shuttle buses for operations out of the San Francisco International Airport. The shuttles will run on Eden Energy’s patented Hythane® fuel (a blend of 20% hydrogen and 80% natural gas).
The Hythane® fuelled shuttle buses are expected to reduce nitrous oxides by 56%, non-methane hydrocarbons by 30% and carbon dioxide by 40% over the existing versions. The Hythane® model is also expected to emit 30% less hydrocarbons and 20% less carbon dioxide than the existing shuttle buses.
