July 12, 2001 by Jeff Shepard

Startech Environmental Corp. (Wilton, CT) announced that it has demonstrated the successful operation of its hydrogen vehicle by driving it around Bristol, CT, the location of the company's demonstration and training center.

Joseph Longo, the president of Startech, commented, "This is a major step that will help forward the expansion of our worldwide marketing program. We plan to use the truck at our center to show how the hydrogen produced from safely processing many kinds of waste in our plasma converter system can be used as the fuel for the truck. It is powered by a direct-use hydrogen engine. This is not a fuel cell or electric-motor vehicle, nor is it a hybrid engine. The car uses no other fuel but hydrogen."
