Germany launches world's first hydrogen-powered train

The world's first hydrogen-powered train has just been launched for commercial use in Germany, it is another victory in the shift towards sustainability.

The Coradia iLint passenger train, which was developed by rail transport, can travel 600 miles (1,000km) on a single tank of hydrogen. Using special fuel cells, the trains generate energy through a combination of hydrogen and oxygen, with excess energy stored in lithium ion batteries. It could be an important step to improve environmental conditions in a future.
