Waste hydrogen purchased from the chemical industry will fuel a new German passenger train, the first of its kind in the country, according to an article from Product Design & Development. The train can reportedly travel 497 miles on one charge and run up to 87 miles per hour, storing surplus energy in lithium batteries underneath the train car.

The Coradia iLint train is built by Alstom in France and is similar in body style to other Alstom trains operating throughout Europe, according to the article. The train will reportedly start transporting passengers in late December 2017.
