- June 12: Alternative fuels for buses
Converting municipal wastes into clean mobility : BioCNG. Sharing a 20-year-long commitment of LilleMétopole Européenne de Lille is both the autorithy for public transport and waste management.
Back 20 years ago, the PTA was one of the first to investigate the benefits of gas buses for urban use : low emission and low noise. In parallel the potential to produce biogas from local waste management grew up to invest in a production plant where green cuts from municipal dechetteries, food wastes from municipal restaurants and garbage collection could provide bio-entrants with interesting methanogene value.
The biogas plant got agreement to inject in the gas grid, so the PTA could use its own renewable origine certificate to power its own gas buses. The Métropole also involved to the local agriculture industry stakeholders for using the compost produced at the biogas plant.
