In support of China's national air quality program, the Hythane Company will test Hythane-based transportation systems in order to begin demonstrating its low-emission vehicle fuel system. The company plans to convert as many as 10,000 diesel buses to be powered by Hythane fuel, a blend of natural gas and hydrogen that reduces emissions by up to 50 percent compared to traditional natural gas. The project targets full conversion prior to the 2008 Olympic Games in Beijing.
