Amanda Lyne, BSc, FCIM, the recently appointed Chair of the UK Hydrogen and Fuel Cell Association, has nearly 15 years’ experience in the industry, having previously founded fuel cell technology company ACAL Energy and now leading ULEMCo, which has globally unique capability in the conversion of vehicles to run on hydrogen, particularly hydrogen diesel dual fuel.
Through her consultancy business she has worked with a number of players in the sector including the industrial gas companies and fuel cell system integrators, particularly focused on what is needed to deliver commercial success in this early stage technology industry.
Her previous career involved various positions at ICI Chemicals and Polymers, particularly Chlor Alkali, which produces hydrogen as a bi-product of the chlorine production process, so she is arguably one of the UKs most experienced experts in the sector.
Alongside this as a Director of the Liverpool City Region Local Enterprise Partnership, she leads the work to deliver economic value from the low carbon sector and developing the area’s strategy to deliver decarbonised energy systems.
Fife Council has been trialling the world’s first hydrogen-powered refuse lorries. We find out how they have been performing in daily operations and if there is potential for different heavy duty applications from the firm behind the technology.
