Liverpool-based ULEMCo was founded in 2014 as a spin out of Revolve Technologies, to commercialise intellectual property and capability in hydrogen combustion engine technology. The company converts vehicles, having started with diesel Ford Transit vans, to enable them to run on commercially available hydrogen. The technology allows vehicle fleet managers to reduce their carbon emissions to ultra-low levels.
Commercial fleets across the UK benefit from a reduced carbon foot print while still having the full range capability of standard diesel vehicles. Alongside various partners, we already support a fleet of vehicles across a range of hydrogen hubs in the UK. Our aim is continue targeting commercial fleet conversions to grow the market significantly over the next 18 months, and then expand into other vehicle types over the longer term. Our growth plans include creating a hydrogen re-fuelling network, to capitalise on the existing local infrastructure for this ‘green’ fuel.
Meet the Leadership Team
Managing Director and Co-Founder
Having worked in hydrogen and fuel cells for some time, I am passionate about delivering solutions for customers that will actually help them make a significant difference to their carbon emissions now, not just sometime in the future.
With over 20 years’ experience in the hydrogen and fuel cell technology sector, Amanda is a specialist in the commercialisation of clean tech businesses.
She is the current Deputy Chair of UK Hydrogen and Fuel Cell Association and during her career has held senior positions, most notably in the Chlor-Alkali industry, which produces hydrogen as a bi-product of the chlorine production process. In fact, she has worked in sectors related to the hydrogen economy her whole career.
Technical Advisor and Co-Founder
Our extensive skills and expertise in combustion provides the most cost-effective solution to decarbonisation of a range of transport applications, enabling a more rapid and sustainable route to zero emissions than a complete reinvention of the “wheel” proposed by other technology solutions.
Paul is MD of CMB:Tech, leading their work on hydrogen technology to deliver emission reduction in marine activities.
This follows the acquisition of Revolve Technologies Ltd by CMB, where Paul was the driving force in developing expertise in alternative energy systems in Hybrid, Electric and Hydrogen technologies.
