  • The combustion principle in H2-ICE involves two hydrogen atoms combining with one oxygen atom to form water, with the heat energy released to ignite the spark plug.
  • While the truck produces no carbon emissions, it produces nitrogen oxides, considered pollutants in India.
  • It is possible to convert a conventional engine into H2-ICE by making a few modifications, such as changes in valves, spark plugs, and fuel injectors.
