Cummins grant seeks clean replacement fuel for heaviest of big rigs

Engine manufacturer Cummins Inc. is up for a $2 million state grant to demonstrate two zero-emission, fuel cell electric heavy trucks capable of delivering bulk cargo cryogenic gas.

The aim of the demonstration project from the California Energy Commission is to replace the heaviest class of diesel trucks, called Class 8, which are capable of hauling loads in excess of 33,001 pounds.

The proposal submitted by Cummins (NYSE: CMI), based in Columbus, Indiana, is from its electrified power division.
