A hydrogen filling station for passenger trains, which is thought to be 'world's first', will be built in Lower Saxony in Germany.
After an eighteen-month test phase for the first two trains, which was completed at the end of February, the project is entering its next phase.
From 2022, 14 hydrogen-powered regional trains supplied by the rail vehicle manufacturer Alstom, will be refuelled there daily - the trains will be able to run without carbon dioxide emissions on the rail network after just one tank filling.
