Transports and fuels
From 2007 all Grönsakshallen Sorunda’s smaller vehicles are powered by either biogas or ethanol.
All of our trucks are powered by MK 1 diesel fuel which uses a 5% mixture of RME and has a sulfur content under 5 parts per million, considerably lower than the 50 ppm stipulated requirement in Europe since 2005.
In 2001 we participated in a pilot trial for an electric hybrid truck from Mercedes. We are currently looking into the possibility of powering the vehicle with 100% RME (a rapeseed bio-fuel) that leaves no carbon footprint at all and is a renewable fuel source.
