Renewable Hydrogen and Hydrogen Blends

As the global climate changes, more companies are turning to sustainable solutions to help lower their carbon footprint. Renewable hydrogen and hydrogen blends are among several alternative fuels customers are considering to achieve their sustainability goals. 

Cutting-Edge Development of Hydrogen-Fueled Power Solutions

Leveraging 35 years of expertise in hydrogen technologies across multiple end markets, Caterpillar continues to improve the performance of hydrogen-fueled power technologies with minimal impacts on maintenance costs and schedules, availability, and operations. 

When it comes to hydrogen fuel, our goals include:

  • Continuing to offer engines capable of running on hydrogen blends
  • Designing products that can run on 100% hydrogen fuel
  • Assisting our customers with navigating the multiple factors that influence hydrogen accessibility (i.e., infrastructure, cost, regulations, storage, policies and incentives, etc.)
  • Leading the industry in research on sustainable renewable fuels

35 YEARS OF EXPERIENCE DEVELOPING HYDROGEN TECHNOLOGIES

Caterpillar has over 35 years of experience burning hydrogen in generator sets. Cat® engines sold today have the ability to run on 5 to 10% hydrogen mixtures. Some customized projects have more than 200,000 operating hours running on up to 60% hydrogen blend.

Caterpillar has a deep performance simulation experience, especially on combustion and flame propagation, gained through research on alternative fuels like hydrogen mixtures and 100% hydrogen in reciprocating engines.  Testing is currently being performed on single- and multi-cylinder configurations of the CG132, CG170, CG260, G3500, and G3600 A4 platforms.
