New Nottingham #biomethane buses show need for greater support of low-#carbon fuels #MondayMotivaton

Nottingham City Transport’s (NCT’s) new bus fleet will run on biomethane, a low-carbon transport fuel produced by anaerobic digestion (AD), a natural process that breaks down food waste, farm waste, and sewage to create a biogas that can then be upgraded to create a methane-based fuel. The biomethane buses, manufactured by Scania, will be unveiled this morning in the Old Market Square by the city’s Lord Mayor. The buses will form the world’s largest biogas double-deck fleet. When on the road, the buses will offer significant emissions reductions, with 3,500 tonnes less CO2 , 36 tonnes less NOx and 0.75 fewer tonnes of fine particular matter emitted per annum.
