New Delhi. Buses will soon run from Hydrogen CNG (H CNG) in Delhi. H CNG will be used in 50 cluster buses on the basis of pilot project for the first time in the country to clamp down on increasing pollution. The use of this fuel in buses will reduce carbon dioxide emissions by up to 50 percent. This is expected to reduce pollution by 18 percent. After this, H CNG will be used in all buses in several phases.
A filling station has also been prepared at Rajghat depot for this. Two dispensers have been installed here. According to DIMTS manager Deepak Agarwal, after completing the work of laying the pipeline with the help of Indian Oil, the preparations for starting the pump are almost complete. After the approval of the fire department, 50 cluster buses will run from H CNG. The use of this fuel in buses will clean the environment while there will be no impact on capacity. This will also reduce carbon dioxide and hydrocarbon emissions. Currently, H CNG will be used in non AC buses. If the results of the buses operating on a pilot basis are positive, then hydrogen CNG will be used in all buses in a phased manner.
