xTL*: a synthetic liquid fuel. It can be produced from biomass (BTL), gas (GTL), coal (CTL) or vegetable oils (HVO). CO2 benefit can vary from -50% to -90% pending on used feedstock.
BIODIESEL**: B30 or B100
CNG***: -70% CO2 from well to wheel achieved with biogas.
Emission standards for trucks are many years ahead of those for cars. Particulates, NOx and all other polluting emissions limits have been reduced almost down to zero, especially with the current Euro VI-D standard. Replacing old generation vehicles with recent ones will therefore considerably contribute to the reduction in emissions.
Fighting global warming and reducing greenhouse gas emissions has become a major concern. Reducing CO2 emissions is our industry’s new priority.
We aim to provide the right transport solution, at the right place with the right energy.
Diesel remains a good answer to the transport industry’s needs, especially for regional and international haulage, for which it will remain the main fuel for many years to come.
The best solution to reduce the environmental footprint of long distance transportation is to remain focused on fuel consumption reduction. Next generation biofuels, especially synthetic paraffinic fuels (HVO, XTL…) will also support further CO2 reductions.
For shorter distances, or closer to urbanised areas, Compressed Natural Gas - CNG - provides an environmentally friendly alternative for the transport industry’s challenges. It contributes to the air quality improvement in cities.
Electromobility is by far the ideal solution for urban applications, with zero tail pipe emissions which will be mandatory from 2025. With more than 10 years of extensive research and developments, and customer collaborations in this area, Renault Trucks is ready to make electric trucks the new standard for cities.
