The transport sector is facing major challenges. Carbon dioxide emissions must be reduced significantly, as well as the emissions of air pollutants – both affecting health and the environment. Sustainable and efficient transports, as well as fuel and logistics solutions are important fields of activity for Sweden.

How we travel and transport goods both by sea, by road, by plane or train are crucial for our current climate change situation. The transport sector is still mainly supplied by fossil fuels, accounting for over a quarter of all global carbon emissions. Emissions of nitrogen oxides leading to eutrophication, acidifying sulphur dioxide, particulate matter, and a number of other hazardous substances for the environment and health follows in the tracks of those emissions.

The prospects to convert to a sustainable transport system are however good. New standards, new technologies, effective policy instruments and changes in behaviour all reduce both emissions and costs for society.

Low-speed electric vehicles in combination with specially designed trailers collect sorted waste fractions and distribute the goods to various recipients.

Green Zone – A Road To Sustainability

The Green Zone in Umeå is s till a role model as a service area closing the loop – even more than 15 years after its inauguration! Green Zone proves in an educational way that it is possible and economically viable to transform from linear to circular thinking. Many visitors come to here every year to learn more about energy efficiency and sustainable solutions.

Liquid gas – drastic reduction of emissions

Using liquid gas can result in a 70 per cent reduction of climate impact compared to diesel. Biogas and natural gas have been used as vehicle fuel in Gothenburg for more than 15 years.

Ultrafast charged electric buses with hybrid backup as option.

In late 2012 Hybricon started the production of its new electric buses, Hybricon Arctic Whisper (HAW). The first bus was a 12-meters bus and the other a four-wheel drive 18-meters articulated bus.
