Iveco Signs Agreement with Italian Biogas Consortium on Environmental Sustainability
Iveco and the Italian Biogas Consortium, two of the biggest Italian companies engaged in the reduction of exhaust emissions, have revealed the details of their collaboration to promote the use of alternative fuels during a biogas event in Rome.
Among other things, this agreement covers the supply of Iveco natural gas and biomethane vehicles to Consortium-registered companies. This action marks the beginning of the collaborative effort of the two leading Italian players in the alternative fuels industry, united by the common goal of reducing CO2 emissions.
Europe has acknowledged the strategic value of this biofuel for the transport sector and for its contribution to compliance with Directive 2009/28/EC on renewable energy sources. The Directive stipulates that a mandatory 10 percent minimum target must be achieved by all Member States for the share of biofuels in transport petrol and diesel consumption by 2020.
