Buses traveling thanks to sewage!
Northern Europe is world champion in clean transport. Moreover, the city of Oslo (Norway) aims to become a “car-free capital” by 2020. Their main objective is to restrict the traffic of cars in the city center.
Sweden has put in place a public transport network, which operates only through renewable energies. Buses run with wastewater and are 90% less polluting than before. The city of Stockholm no longer uses diesel or other fuel and is often referred to as a model of ecology.
In partnership with the French-Canadian operator Keolis, the city recovers wastewater and sends it directly to a biomethane production plant. Buses can cover a distance of only 8 km thanks to rechargeable batteries. In a distance of barely 6 minutes. The buses also have a hybrid biodiesel-electricity engine.
“In Stockholm, it is the waste of the city that produces gas to power the buses,” says Jean-Pierre Farandou, owner of Keolis and French operator responsible for the operation of a portion of the buses in Stockholm.
This system is so conclusive that 90% of the pollution related to public transport is avoided. It is also 80,000 tons less CO2 sent into the atmosphere. That’s the equivalent of 40,000 gasoline cars in circulation.
