Zürich Office Of Parks & Open Spaces Uses Green Waste To Fuel Scania G 410 Biogas Truck

“We have large amounts of green waste that we can refuel from, thereby reaching a closed recycling loop,” says Beat Schraner, fleet manager at Grün Stadt Zürich. (Photo courtesy of Scania.)

Grün Stadt Zürich manages 40% of the city area of Zurich, including all public green spaces in the city: street and park trees, urban woodlands, parks, sports fields and playgrounds, and cemeteries. These daily activities generate huge amounts of organic waste, which the agency now uses to create locally produced biogas for its Scania G 410 biogas truck.

100% Biogas

“Scania offers us the opportunity to use a gas engine, that we can run on 100% biogas,” says Grün Stadt Zürich Fleet Manager Beat Schraner. “We have large amounts of green waste that we can refuel from, thereby reaching a closed recycling loop.”

The Scania G 410 truck also allows Grün Stadt Zürich to serve as a shining example for a city that already attaches particular importance to the environment.

More On The G Series

Cab options for the G-Series include a short cab, a low day cab, and low, normal, or highline sleeper cabs. Engine options include 9- and 13-litre units that produce between 280 and 540 horsepower (208 and 403 kilowatts) and from 1,400 to 2,700 newton-metres of torque. The 410-HP (305 kW) engine in Grün Stadt Zürich’s truck delivers 2,000 N-m of torque, and customers can also configure the G Series with a 13-litre, 410-HP engine that operates on diesel, biodiesel, or HVO.
