Cavriago (Reggio Emilia), 19 December 2012
Five school buses which at present run on diesel fuel and are operated by the town of Mercato San Severino, will be converted to accept a blend of diesel and methane thanks to Landi Renzo's Dual Fuel technology.
This will provide a significant reduction in polluting emissions, not to mention as considerable savings.
The town council has signed an agreement to this effect with Landi Renzo S.p.A.
The initiative was presented on December 11 at a press conference held in Palazzo Vanvitelliano, the local town hall.
The Dual Fuel system is not the only Landi Renzo technology to be fitted to the town's school buses: they also use the “Intelligent Moving System”, a satellite system which integrates the environmental benefits of using Dual Fuel vehicles and displays them in real time.
For years, the town of Mercato San Severino has been at the cutting edge of planning and implementing policies aimed at environmental sustainability.
This initiative, like others implemented in the past, is inspired by the need to improve mobility by experimenting with innovative vehicles in order to achieve sustainable mobility and combine the rationalisation of spending with lower environmental impact and greater efficiency.
