Lord Bamford | President Jcb
“JCB’s engineering team has made great strides in a short space of time to develop a hydrogen internal combustion engine that already powers prototypes of a backhoe loader and telehandler. As the first construction equipment company to develop a fully functional hydrogen-powered combustion engine, I am delighted that we are now able to present this technology on the international stage.”
At the forefront of Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) for the construction equipment sector, JCB has been responsible for a number of innovations for the sector as part of its ‘Road to Zero’ strategy.
JCB developed the world’s first battery-electric mini excavator and has been at the forefront of developing electric technology to meet customer demands for zero-carbon products with its E-Tech range. Today it has the widest electric range available in the construction sector and the company’s experience in this sector will be on display at the show.
JCB’s commitment to reducing emissions dates back almost 25 years and its latest diesel engines have already achieved a 97% reduction in NOx emissions since 1999 and a 98% reduction in particulate matter. Today, Jcb’s diesel cars emit 50% less CO2 than those manufactured in 2010. Jcb’s clean diesel engine technology will also be showcased at the Las Vegas stand.
