Biogas is produced by the natural breakdown of food and sewage waste. It uses a process called anaerobic digestion similar to the inside of a cow’s stomach to split waste material into gas – bio fuel – and solids – bio fertilizer.
Scania biogas fuelled buses qualify for government funding under the Low Emission Bus scheme. The scheme forms part of a £600 million package designed to speed up the transition to an ultra-low emission bus fleet in England and Scotland.
We’re at the forefront of sustainable transport solutions because we don’t just look at fuel. Our holistic approach to public and commercial transport means we’re driving the shift in alternative fuels, energy efficiency and smarter transport.
"Running a gas fleet is less than 70% of the direct cost of a diesel fleet, or 80% including the infrastructure required. They're also much more reliable, which would be worth paying a premium for!"
