Firm Develops Fuel-Cell Powered Scrubber

Plymouth, MN, Jan. 30, 2013 -- Floor cleaning equipment firm Nilfisk-Advance Group has rolled out what it calls the first fuel cell-powered industrial combination sweeper-scrubber.

"This first-of-its-kind fuel cell-powered unit provides a sweeper-scrubber solution for customers who have already invested in fuel cell technology, allowing them to further leverage their fuel cell investment and infrastructure,” said U.S. president Jeff Barna.

Like all fuel cells, the machine operates solely on hydrogen, which provides emission-free operation.
