Clean waste collection vehicles with filters

The project introduces new clean filter system for waste trucks, to test if EURO IV is feasible for this specially developed filter system for this type of truck use (working at low exhaust temperatures). These waste trucks will function in the new logistic service for waste collection, reducing the total vehicle kilometres of waste trucks in the inner city, combined with the clean vehicles.

In the present situation, no waste collection vehicles with particle filters are in use, due to the fact that until very recently these filters were not available.In the city area the coming year over 3000 extra underground containers for waste collection will be realised, bringing the total to 4600.
