New Biofuel Bus Powered by Food Waste Set to Hit Bristol Streets

Submitted by on August 10, 2017 – 4:20 pmNo Comment

by Krishan Davis (Bristol Post)  … Following on from last year’s ‘poo bus’ experiment, Bristol will soon have a new form of low-emissions public transport, powered by an unusual gas.

On August 21, a double-decker bus powered by biofuel will be launched. The vehicle will be powered by biomethane – a renewable gas created from food waste that makes it a completely renewable and sustainable fuel source.

FirstGroup will initially use the bright green double-decker as a pathfinder to assess how well it can cope with the demands of city-wide operations in Bristol and how it impacts things like refuelling and maintenance.

The biomethane buses are rated as the best low-emission double-decker bus on the market at the moment.

Using biomethane, the bus’ greenhouse gas emissions should be 84 per cent cleaner than a Euro 5 diesel over its life cycle.

The tailpipe emissions of the vehicle should even be lower than many modern Euro 6 diesel passenger cars.

It should also be quieter, with a different type of engine in operation aimed at improving the experience for the 70 people on board.   READ MORE
