Efficient logistical chains in agriculture ensures access to market and affordable food.
Increased access to sustainable produced biofuels like biomethane – purified biogas – will be vital to decarbonising our fleet in line with the Paris Agreement.
As well as cutting carbon emissions from transport, biomethane contributes to sustainable agriculture, rural jobs that are hard to displace and recovery of waste streams.
Biomethane can be used in gas-powered trucks with no engine modifications. This means that for many of Scania’s customers – such as Belgian haulier Van de Poel – biomethane has the potential to deliver substantial cost savings and sustainability benefits without the need for an expensive vehicle overhaul. Together with Scania and its fuel supplier Drive Systems, Van de Poel has been working on a pilot project to increase the share of biomethane in its fleet of trucks currently running on liquefied natural gas (LNG).
