Scania’s Internal Transport to Use Bioethanol

Truck manufacturer Scania has switched its internal transport services to fossil-free fuel.

The Swedish company is putting eight trucks (pictured) powered by bioethanol into use at its production facilities in Södertälje, Sweden. The move should cut emissions at those plants by around 70 percent, Scania says.

In Södertälje, Scania primarily operates trucks to transport components and packaging material between its various production and assembly workshops. These internal freight traffic operations were recently taken over by the Scania Transport Laboratory, a wholly-owned subsidiary that tests and evaluates vehicle characteristics and performance in commercial haulage. Its tasks also include training Scania’s drivers in economic and safe driving, and monitoring their performance.

Scania says that, as a supplier of transport products, it is important for it to take the lead in developing sustainable alternative solutions and demonstrate how sustainability and efficiency are linked in practice.

In February, the EPA certified Scania rival Daimler Trucks North America’s complete 2013 portfolio of on-highway, vocational and medium duty vehicles as fully compliant with 2014 greenhouse gas regulations. DTNA’s GHG14 certification came a year ahead of the mandated compliance date.

One thought on “Scania’s Internal Transport to Use Bioethanol

  1. The world will need much more biofuels. In a way as not to sacrifice agriculture for food, we must resort to places where there is plenty of land, sun and people in need of opportunities.
    Africa could help the world in terms of energy and itself as the continent boosts its agriculture, for food and for biofuels.
