With a travel speed of 65-MPH and a battery operational range of up to 11 hours, towns, villages and large cities will be able to clean their streets while protecting our environment and building a cleaner future with ZERO EMISSIONS.

In 2012 Global Environmental Products built the first Global M4 HYBRID Street Sweeper.
Global reduced overall fuel-consumption and carbon footprint by 50% operating the Hybrid Street Sweeper compared to a diesel drive unit, but that wasn't enough. ZERO EMISSIONS was the ultimate goal!
In 2018 Global introduced the M4 ZE Hydrogen Fuel Cell Street Sweeper
A hydrogen fuel cell system produces electricity from compressed hydrogen gas in a thermo-chemical process, then uses the electricity to power an electric system and motors that drive the vehicle. The fuel cell and hydrogen tank take the place of a diesel engine.
The by-product of electro-chemical reaction results in electrical energy and H2O. The water produced through this chemical reaction is diverted to the sweeper's water tank system, providing an additional 43-gallons of water per shift to use for dust suppression. Our hydrogen-powered sweeper is in operation today.
