“Therefore, every time a truck is due for replacement, we check how mature the technology is at that time, and whether we can switch to an alternative drive. This includes looking at hybrid forms of propulsion as well as CNG (pressurised natural gas) and LNG (liquefied natural gas). The new trucks driving for us incorporate the latest technologies, making them more efficient and sustainable in use than their predecessors anyway."
A now serious alternative, according to Remco, are HVO fuels, made from waste vegetable oils and residual waste. These reduce emissions by up to 90%. "If conditions allow, we will do a pilot to see if it works for us in practice."
