Germany Unveils THIS Zero-Emissions Train That Only Emits Steam

The world’s first zero-emission passenger train, the Coradia iLint has been revealed by German engineers and is run on hydrogen fuel.

The Coradia iLint only emits steam into the atmosphere and gives a competitive, clean alternative to the country’s 4,000 diesel trains.

Lower Saxony has already ordered 14 of them from French company Alstom, and more are likely to be seen around the country if they are judged a success, reports Die Welt.

By the end of the year testing should have been secured and is planned to open up to the public by December 2017.

The train was first introduced at Berlin’s InnoTrans trade show in August, and it is set to be the first hydrogen-powered train to regularly ferry people over long distances.

The ingenious train has also garnered huge interest from Netherlands, Denmark and Norway.

Pretty much soundless, the hydrail travel almost 500 miles per day at a top speed of 87mph - the only sound it gives off is em itted from the wheels and air resistance.

Alstom CEO Henri Poupart-Lafarge, said in a statement: 

Alstom is proud to launch a breakthrough innovation in the field of clean transportation. It shows our ability to work in close collaboration with our customers and develop a train in only two years.

Hydrogen power works when hydrogen is burned with oxygen to produce huge amounts of energy, with the only by-product being water. 

Hydrogen fuel hasbeen used by NASA to propel its rockets since the 70s. The cloud that billows from the launch pad on take off isn’t smoke, but steam.
