Oak Ridge National Laboratory has started a research project to investigate the use of hydrogen fuel in a railway engine to reduce carbon dioxide emissions and help fight climate change. Railways is one of the industries that are considered challenging to decarbonize along with aviation and shipping.

Researchers at ORNL and Argonne National Laboratory near Chicago will use a large, 375-horsepower Wabtec single-cylinder engine that will burn a mixture of hydrogen and diesel fuel, which is what locomotives now burn. Under four-year agreements, the researchers will study things like engine hardware, fuel mixtures and ignition strategies. Other low carbon fuels can also be studied.
