Iveco unveils Stralis Hi-Road powered by liquid biofuel23 May 2016

Iveco has unveiled a Stralis Hi-Road powered by liquid biofuel (bio-LNG), which was launched at the inauguration of the BioGNVAL industrial pilot site at the Valenton plant in Val-de-Marne, France, and was fuelled for the event with gas produced by the facility’s wastewater treatment process.

The ceremony was the culmination of a three-year project to convert biogas produced by the plant’s wastewater treatment process into bio-LNG.

The renewable fuel, which is easy to store and ship, is used to transport goods and passengers, among other applications, and the Valenton site’s production of the fuel is a first for France.

The fuel emits no particulate matter and this Stralis cuts CO2 emissions by 90%, and noise emissions by 50% (PIEK certification) compared with a traditional diesel vehicle.

Thierry Kilidjean, Iveco France business director, says: “Gas engines are a major development, and we aim to promote them as the only alternative to diesel for heavy trucks.”
