Case study: Volvo Europa Trucks

Objective:
Volvo wanted to realise the first CO2-free automotive plant in the world.

2 plants were chosen as a pilot :
 Volvo

Europa Truck in Gent as the first to realise this goal

 followed

by Tüve (Sweden)

Site Characteristics

Site Characteristics
 Energy

needs (2004)

 Electricity : ca. 23 GWh/yr
 Heat : hot water : ca. 22 GWh/yr
 Natural gas: incinerator: ca. 0.5 GWh / yr
 No

local biomass/bio-gas production

 Available

area:

 for Wind Turbines
 for biomass installation
(unloading station, storage, boiler, flue gas treatment, ash disposal)
