TheMunicipal Commissioner of Nagpur ShravanHardikar, IAS, has kindly offered toshowcase India’s firstethanol powered city bus in Pune on 25th June 2016, at the city’s first anniversary of the smart city project launch. Prime Minister NarendraModi will attend the event and launch a number of initiatives under the smart city project. Scania is honoured to participate the Pune smart city anniversarywith the Green Bus on behalf of Nagpur Municipal Corporation.
Scania is closely aligned with the mission of establishing sustainable smart cities that balance superior citizen services with ecological benefits and provide clean green and sustainable mass transit options. The ethanol powered bus is a first step in that direction. Developed as Scania’s pilot project in the area of bio fuel powered transport solutions, the trial run of the Ethanol Green Bus in Nagpur has clearly demonstrated the merits of implementing sustainable transport solutions in a country that is in a phase of rapid urbanisation.
Clean and green renewable fuels, together with safe and smartmobility solutions, play a vital role in India’s smart city mission. They provide the blueprint for smart cities to develop sustainable urban transport solutions. Mobility solutions that use bio fuels can not only help in reducing emissions but also create value from waste. As India grapples with climate change and waste disposal, bio fuel technologies hold significant opportunities for the nation. These sustainable fuels also have an important role to play in helping the Government of India achieve its objective of reducing dependency on imported fossil fuels and reducing pollution.
