  • Coca-Cola Enterprises trial report

    Resource

    Driven by a desire to produce a step change reduction in fleet CO2 emissions Coca-Cola Enterprises (CCE) evaluated and compared the emissions, fuel consumption, economics, reliability and operability of a 26 tonne Iveco Stralis gas vehicle operating on biomethane with that of a diesel Stralis vehicle. The vehicles’ performance was evaluated as part of a collaborative assessment project involving Cenex - the UK’s Centre of Excellence for Low Carbon and Fuel Cell technologies acting as an independent monitoring body, Iveco – the vehicle provider, GasRec – the fuel supplier and CCE – the vehicle operator, where the economic, technical and programme support resources of each partner were pooled.

  • Biomethane toolkit

    Resource

    The biomethane toolkit has been designed to give local authorities and others information about what is needed to produce and use biomethane as a vehicle fuel. It contains 10 Topic Sheets on the various aspects of biomethane production and use, a calculation tool to allow you to assess the potential viability of biomethane in your situation and a directory of suppliers. The toolkit will allow users to understand biomethane as a vehicle fuel and scope out the potential viability for use in their specific circumstances.

  • Fleet carbon reduction guidance

    Resource

    Cenex’s Fleet carbon reduction tool allows accurate estimation of the carbon reduction performance of different transport fuels and technology options in real-world fleet applications, thereby avoiding the need for costly and time consuming vehicle trials. This study demonstrates the application of the tool to a typical return to base fleet operation of light goods vehicles in London.
