The last few years have been under great pressure to reduce emissions in transport. The end of sales of internal combustion engines and the promotion of electromobility are being promoted. The end date for the production of internal combustion engines has been set by the European Commission at 2035. However, this proposal is still subject to approval by the European Parliament and the 27 countries. Subject to the approval of this proposal – is this deadline realistic? Should we develop an alternative propulsion system that would fully replace all petrol and diesel engines?

What will you learn in the article?

  • Advantages and disadvantages of hydrogen propulsion.
  • Are hydrogen propulsion dangerous?
  • Where are hydrogen propulsion used and where is electromobility?

Who will tell us more about hydrogen technology?

Kristýna Váchalová has extensive experience in the development of petrol, diesel, hybrid and hydrogen propulsion, mainly for Daimler AG for cars and trucks, and buses. She has been working in the development of hydrogen vehicles for 8 years. It developed the intakes and exhausts of hydrogen cars. She is very proud of the patent she received for developing a system for capturing and controlling the discharge of water from the exhaust. She also did a feasibility study of a hydrogen bus – a conceptual solution for the location and fastening of hydrogen systems in the existing engine compartment in the bus, the design of hydrogen tanks and their fastening. She was the first in Daimler to do an initial feasibility study of hydrogen systems for 5 different trucks.

In discussions on the LinkedIn professional network, we “clashed” with topics related to battery and hydrogen propulsion. How does Kristýna perceive them?
