Amtrak Seeks Net Zero Emissions by 2045

Amtrak said this week it will seek to achieve net-zero greenhouse gas emissions by 2045.

The passenger carrier said key components of this plan include reducing the amount of diesel fuel it consumes in its locomotives and making more use of such technologies as fuel cells and hydrogen batteries. 

By 2030 Amtrak said it plans to use only 100 percent carbon-free electricity that was not created through the use of coal and similar fuels.

The Amtrak pledge is similar to those made by various other railroads to reduce their greenhouse gas emissions.
