JCB is set to showcase its hydrogen combustion technology on the international stage for the first time ever with a debut in North America.

The wraps will come off JCB's brand new hydrogen combustion engine – the company's zero-carbon emissions solution for construction and agricultural equipment – at the CONEXPO 2023 as part of the International Fluid Power Exposition (IFPE) at Booth S83751 in South Hall 3.

"The JCB engineering team has made enormous strides in a short space of time to develop a hydrogen internal combustion engine and it already powers a JCB prototype backhoe loader and a Loadall telescopic handler," says JCB Chairman Lord Bamford.

JCB has made many advancements that focus on lowering emissions and increasing sustainability.

JCB has developed a battery-electric mini excavator and has developed other electric technologies with its E-TECH range. JCB has one of the largest electric equipment line-ups available in the construction industry, which will also be on show at CONEXPO.

JCB's commitment to reducing emissions goes back almost 25 years and its latest diesel engines have already delivered a 97 percent reduction in NOx emissions since 1999 and a 98 percent reduction in particulates. JCB's diesel-powered machines also emit 50 percent less CO2 compared with those manufactured in 2010. JCB's clean diesel engine technology will also be showcased at the show.
