powered by biogas

Fuelled by nature

The Future is now

Biogas is the most commercially viable way to reduce CO2 emissions for transport. It provides cleaner, greener and quieter operation with significantly lower costs than those associated with hybrid, electric or hydrogen options. It’s a completely natural, sustainable and renewable fuel source, and it’s available now.

Green

Up to 90% reduction in CO2 emissions.

Clean

Better air quality with less particle emissions.

Smart

Lower operating costs than equivalent diesel.

Quiet

Less engine noise and less vibration.

PRODUCTION

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.

INCENTIVES

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.

INNOVATION

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.

A BROADER PICTURE

The production of biogas doesn't just give communities a sustainable alternative fuel source, it can help boost local economy and reinforce social responsibility.

ECONOMICAL

Manufacturers, processors, local authorities and retailers reduce landfill tax by diverting organic waste from landfill to treatment through anaerobic digestion – which produces biogas.

RESPONSIBLE

Landfill gases are made up of CO2 and methane, both of which are greenhouse gas. Methane is over 25 times more damaging to the atmosphere than carbon dioxide.

VERSATILE

The process of anaerobic digestion doesn’t just produce biogas. It also produces a nutrient-rich low carbon fertilizer which can generate new revenue streams.

"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!"
