A string of Australian deals for Hyzon has continued via its latest agreement, with waste-handling equipment firm Superior Pak.

The two parties signed a memorandum of understanding (MOU) to develop and supply 20 hydrogen fuel-cell refuse-collection vehicles (RCV).

The companies aim to deliver a zero-emissions side lift garbage truck capable of undertaking the 1,500-2,000 compactor lifts required during an 8-10 hour suburban working cycle. 

The first five vehicles are expected to be delivered and operational in the second quarter of 2022.

Three of the first five vehicles are expected to be available from Hyzon under minimum one-month demonstration loan arrangements in the Brisbane, Sydney and Melbourne areas associated with available hydrogen refuelling facilities. 

Orders are currently being accepted for the balance of 15 vehicles with expected demand from local governments as well as waste collection operators across Australia.

"Over 530 Australian municipalities manage waste collection for their residents, many of which have committed to net-zero emissions across their operations," Hyzon CEO Craig Knight said.

"Despite these commitments, few viable zero-emissions options exist."

Hyzon noted refuse collection offers a particularly suitable application for hydrogen fuel cell technology to replace diesel, as the back-to-base model allows for a central refuelling infrastructure.

"Clean waste management is no longer an oxymoron," Superior Pak managing director Rob Wrigley was quoted as saying.

"The benefits to the environment, the communities and drivers is enormous, so we are determined to develop a reliable, accessible option within a year."

This announcement came as Hyzon Motors was set for trading on the Nasdaq Marketplace, on July 20, Australian time.
