France's rail transport company Alstom has launched the world's first hydrogen-powered train. Fuel cells have been installed in the train, which produces energy by mixing hydrogen with oxygen. In return, only steam will be emitted forgiving power.

Right now, this technique has been described as expensive by trains running from diesel. But the producer company Alstom says that after the purchase, the cost of running will be reduced continuously. Alstom CEO Henry Lafarge said on the occasion of launch that the world's first hydrogen train was landing in commercial services. It is also demanded in many other countries. Among them are the UK, Netherlands, Denmark, Norway, Italy and Canada. 

Regulating for hydrogen trains is now done in only two cities. A fuel container has been installed at 40 feet in the station for fueling. In the next two years, a hydrogen fuel station can be built in Germany for this train's intrusion.

The project manager of Alstom told that even though the train is a bit expensive compared to the diesel train, but it will prove to be a bit cheaper in terms of expenditure. He said that many countries are looking to buy hydrogen trains as alternatives to grow faster in the field of transportation.
