Las Vegas — Today at the CES tech show, Kenworth Trucks and Toyota announced a partnership to build 10 fuel cell-powered Kenworth 18-wheelers that will produce zero emissions.
The initiative is part of a larger collaboration with the California Air Resources Board (CARB) to install zero emissions cargo handling equipment at Port of Los Angeles by 2020.
CARB is kicking in $41 million for the project and the private sector partners are matching that amount. Toyota will provide the fuel cells, and Kenworth the trucks, which have around a 300 mile range, Toyota chief engineer Andrew Lund said.
The collaboration will help reduce emissions by 465 metric tons of greenhouse gases, and 0.72 weighted tons of nitrous oxide and particulate matter, according to the Port of Los Angeles.
