The provinces of Friesland and Groningen, with rail manager ProRail, plan to start testing a train running on hydrogen next year. The provinces hope that hydrogen will prove to be a cheap and sustainable alternative to the diesel trains currently running between Leeuwarden and Groningen, the Volkskrant reports.
A team of Technical University Eindhoven students presented a scale model car which runs on formic acid on Thursday. The one meter big car drove several rounds on a podium, according to ANP. The team plans to further develop the project and hopes to have a bus running on formic acid on the road by the end of the year.
