Fuel cell buses expected to spur platinum demand – Implats

Buses powered by platinum-catalysed fuel cells are attracting the attention of South Africans, who will visit Germany next month to update themselves on passenger carriers that emit zero pollution into the atmosphere. “There’s a lot of interest in fuel cell buses simply because the refuelling points can be centralised at a depot, and we’ve got a visit lined up to Germany to look at fuel cell buses and trains in October,” Impala Platinum (Implats) group executive marketing Paul Finney told Mining Weekly Online during a media roundtable.
