Garbage Trucks Running on Natural Biogas from Garbage to Be Tested in Toronto


For many years a large number of landfills extending from California to the Great Lakes have been accumulating methane.

Recently Toronto expressed its idea of using the natural biogas to power garbage trucks.

The new trucks will feature Cummins Westport ISL G motors.

They will be able to run on natural biogas and the biogas gathered from local landfills across Toronto.

The pilot program is part of the city's Green Fleet Plan.

Only one truck has been purchased so far. In case the testing shows promising results, more trucks will be acquired.

It is also possible that these trucks will be able to run on organic waste that they collect around the city, reports Gas2.0.
