Bioethanol truck hits Nordic roads
It’s fitting that the very first truck to be equipped with Scania’s new 13 l bioethanol engine is being used to deliver ethanol. The truck belongs to Lantmännen Agroetanol, which operates the largest bio-refinery in the Nordic region.
The 410 hp truck is operated by the Josef Lindberg i Sandarne haulage company for deliveries from Lantmännen in Gävle to customers in mid-Sweden.
By using the heavy vehicle grade fuel ED95 (bioethanol blended with an ignition improver) carbon emissions are reduced by up to 90%. The output of nitrogen oxide and particulate matter is also substantially lowered. (ben)
