The Greenest Bus In The World
2010 sees the introduction of a green fleet of buses servicing the capital city of Norway. Oslo aims to be carbon neutral by 2050 and one of the first steps its taking is to power its buses in an eco friendly but unconventional way.
Oslo’s buses will be run on biomethane made from human waste which will be processed at two local sewage works. It will mean that the city’s population will be contributing to help power the buses in a cost effective and sustainable manner. Raw sewage which is usually seen as a waste mangagement problem will be used as an alternative to diesel and will mean a saving of 44 tonnes of Co2 per bus every year.
