Apparently an ordinary 'brick truck' drives from MBI Veghel to Bezuidenhout in The Hague. A major project by Heijmans, which Construction Transport is currently supplying on behalf of MBI. Without you noticing, this transport makes an important contribution to the 2030 climate goals and the circular economy. This truck runs for 100 percent on the alternative fuel HVO100 and is therefore more sustainable than many other trucks.
What is HVO100?
The abbreviation HVO stands for 'Hydrotreated Vegetable Oil', a fuel from waste streams. The number '100' behind HVO indicates that it concerns a sustainable diesel of high quality in the purest form (100%). With HVO100 you can diesel sustainably. It is fossil-free and delivers a reduction of greenhouse gas emissions of up to 90 percent compared to standard diesel. The fuel can be used in all modern diesel engines and in any mixing ratio.
Why is this important?
Construction transport refuels this HVO100 on behalf of MBI, instead of standard diesel. This way they prevent extra CO2 in the atmosphere. With these deliveries to The Hague, approximately 157 loads in total, approximately 37.000 kg of CO2 is saved (compared to standard transport). In doing so, they meet an important sustainable pillar.
By 2030, greenhouse gas emissions must be halved. Transport is a 'CO2 intensive activity' and is therefore a crucial factor in achieving this objective. A more sustainable form of transport is therefore increasingly required when obtaining new orders. Also for these deliveries to The Hague, an order that was won because MBI together with Construction Transport was able to offer this more sustainable form of transport.
