Zero/Low-Emission Locomotive Global Roundup

The title of this post, is the same as that of this article on Railway Age.

This is the introduction.

By 2050, in accordance with the Paris Climate Agreement, zero-emission locomotives may have completely replaced conventional diesel-powered equipment on the railways of the world.

Current development of zero-emission switcher locomotives, combined with practical operating experience, increases this likelihood in the foreseeable future.

It will be increasingly possible to determine the optimal type or types of zero- or low- emission locomotives to replace conventional diesel units.

They then give a roundup, which includes American, Canadian Chinese, French, Indian and Polish locomotives.

There was no mention of Clean Air Power‘s conversion of a Class 66 locomotive to dual-fuel operation, that I wrote about in Clean Air Power Adds Hydrogen To Class 66 Fuel Mix.
