Scania to deliver 450 buses to Abidjan and look at biogas production from crop waste

December 11, 2019 |

In the Ivory Coast, Scania has signed an agreement with the Ivorian Ministry of Transport and SOTRA, the Abidjan Transport Company, to deliver 450 buses. The bus delivery forms part of a major initiative to upgrade SOTRA’s fleet and improve public transport in Abidjan, Côte d’Ivoire.

Scania, in collaboration with Agence Nationale d’Appui au Développement Rural (ANADER), has initiated a feasibility study funded by Swedfund, the Swedish Development Finance Institution, to assess the opportunities for producing local biofuels from agricultural waste from cocoa, rubber and banana cultivation. Côte d’Ivoire is by far the world’s largest cocoa producer.
