Clean Cities Niche Market Overview: Refuse Haulers (Brochure)

    Research output: NRELBrochure

    Abstract

    Refuse haulers are ideal for the adoption of alternative fuels and advanced vehicle technologies. By using fuels like natural gas, propane, or biodiesel, and technologies like hybrid electric and hydraulic hybrid systems, the refuse-hauling sector could substantially decrease its petroleum use and greenhouse gas emissions. Fleet managers should explore the benefits of the fuels and technologiesavailable, as well as the individual fleet needs, before adoption.
