Sewage and food waste powered trucks?
The claim is, that by converting these trucks from diesel to biomethane, they will remove the equivalent of approximately 100 cars from the roads, with emissions being cut by up to 84%.
The Bio-CNG fuel used by theses trucks will come from anaerobic digestion waste and sewage located at the Bristol Bioresources and Renewable Energy Park.
Director of Bioresources, Sean Hill stated “This will make a huge difference to our carbon footprint and help improve the air quality of communities in our region, as well as improving operational efficiency and bringing cost benefits.
“Two vehicles have been purchased initially and we hope to eventually roll out the use of Bio-CNG across our entire biosolids fleet.”
