Towards a sustainable mobile future through cooperation with Eco-Runner

April 30, 2021

Since this year Hydro Extrusions Benelux is the proud sponsor of the Eco-Runner: the world's most efficient city car to date. The organization is in the hands of 23 students from Delft University of Technology who, by building a hydrogen-powered city car, want to contribute to a sustainable future.

Design

It is clear that the sustainable aspect of the Eco-Runner is a good match for Hydro, but by using aluminium the Eco-Runner is also lighter in weight. As a sponsor, Hydro was closely involved in the realisation of the sustainable design of the Eco-Runner XI.

Towards a sustainable future

By building this car and promoting hydrogen as part of the energy transition, Eco-Runner Team Delft wants to contribute to a sustainable future. The goal is to cover as much distance as possible with as little hydrogen as possible.

Winner of Data and Telemetry Award

We can safely say that "the Eco-Runners" succeeded in their goal, as they recently won the Data and Telemetry Award of the Shell Eco-marathon Off-track awards. The judges described it as follows: "The data and telemetry system is excellent, comprehensive and very advanced.

They achieved this by working together as a team, but also in the chain such as with Hydro.
