  • Regional AD facility feasibility study

    Resource

    Feasibility Study for a Large Scale Regional Anaerobic Digestion Facility.This report details a study for the implementation of a large scale anaerobic digestion (AD) facility in the East Midlands. The study focuses on the anaerobic digestion of waste biodegradable materials in the form of commercial and industrial food waste to produce biomethane for use in transport logistic applications.

  • Leeds biomethane RCV trial report

    Resource

    Trial of biomethane-powered refuse collection vehicles in Leeds. This report details the operation and results of a trial of two biomethane powered refuse collection vehicles in Leeds between May 2009 and July 2010. The vehicles trialled were a Mercedes-Benz Econic LLG vehicle with a spark ignition engine running on biomethane alone, and a Dennis-Eagle Elite modified by Hardstaff to run on a mixture of diesel and biomethane, commonly known as dual-fuel. This report provides a well-to-wheel analysis of the greenhouse gas savings achieved by the vehicles as well as an analysis of the drivers and barriers to their extended uptake.

  • Greenwich waste and fleet analysis

    Resource

    The Cenex Biomethane Calculator has been designed to give an indicative production quantity of biomethane and an indicative revenue value in both combined heat and power (CHP) and vehicle applications. This allows for a quantitative decision to be made on whether a more detailed engineering and financial analysis for a particular AD programme should be progressed.

  • 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.

  • Fleet carbon reduction technology comparison

    Resource

    Vehicle operators are under dual economic and environmental pressure to optimise fuel use and reduce the carbon emissions from fleets. The application of low carbon technologies has the potential to save on fuel costs and reduce CO2 emissions in fleets, but an absence of real-world data can be a disincentive to uptake.

  • Smart Move Trial Case Studies Report

    Resource

    The Smart Move Case Studies report is a timely document as 2011 has marked the introduction of commercially available refined and reliable EVs into the UK from mainstream automotive manufacturers. The market introduction of these EVs has been supported through government grants for vehicles (through the Plug-in Car Grant) and infrastructure (through the Plugged-in-Places programme). […]
