In Australia, Scania Australia Pty Ltd has recently signed Memoranda of Understanding (MoU) with three providers in the national biofuels industry; Wilmar BioEthanol (Australia) Pty Ltd, Eco Tech Biodiesel Pty Ltd and NGV Group Pty Ltd, in a bid to “lubricate the path” towards adoption of more sustainable and cleaner transport solutions for its customers.
According to Bioenergy Australia, an industry association representing the bioenergy sector of which Scania Australia is a member, the company is taking “bold strides” towards making the adoption of alternative fuels an easier choice for the country’s transport operators having recently MOU’s with Bioenergy Australia members Wilmar BioEthanol Australia and Eco Tech Biodiesel, as well as with gas fuel specialist NGV Group.
According to Anthony King, Sustainable Solutions Manager at Scania Australia, a subsidiary of the Sweden-headed engine, bus, and truck manufacturer, Scania is now moving to “facilitate the adoption of alternative-fueled vehicles in Australia.”
Shahana McKenzie is delighted that Bioenergy Australia members are working together to deliver biofuels solutions locally.
Paul Hetherington, CEO of Eco Tech Biodiesel that operates a 30 million litre per annum biodiesel plant in Brisbane, Queensland, says he is delighted to see the international truck and bus giant Scania “forging a path” for biodiesel and cleaner fuels in Australia.
King revealed that Scania Australia is awaiting the arrival of its first hybrid buses, which will be in the country within 6-7 months. In use in Madrid, these buses are showing a 25 percent reduction in fuel use, reducing emissions by the same amount.
