Lisbon launches B100 bus routes

December 12, 2019 |

In Portugal, the “Biodiesel Powered” project is a joint initiative between CARRIS and PRIO launched to promote sustainable mobility in the city of Lisbon.

The 702 route Marquês Pombal <> Serafina – R. Igreja is supplied with a new fuel specially produced by PRIO from waste cooking oils, which reduces the greenhouse gas emissions of traditional fossil fuels by 83%.

This biofuel (B100) is produced at PRIO’s factory in Porto de Aveiro, and is already being used by six CARRIS buses that ensure the career path 702 every day, between Serafina and Marquês de Pombal.

The project shows CARRIS ‘commitment to improving the environmental performance of mobility in Lisbon. The company is making a major effort to renew its fleet, but of course not renewing a fleet of CARRIS size overnight. With this project we intend to achieve two objectives: explore one more way to reduce the climate impacts of the operation and use the high visibility that the company has in the city of Lisbon to raise awareness of the importance of recycling.
