SNCF’s use of B100 reduces CO2 emissions by 11,000 tons since April 2021

January 30, 2023 |

In France, since April 2021, trains on the Paris-Granville line have been powered exclusively by B100, a 100% rapeseed biofuel, representing a first in France. Over this time period, the emission of 11,000 tons of CO2 emissions were thus avoided.
This innovative initiative in Normandy, France’s first, enables withdrawing the use of fossil fuels in the short term, without modifying the rolling stock, thus cutting down on greenhouse gas emissions for a more sustainable form of mobility.
On July 5, 2022, the Plenary Session of the Normandy Region voted in favor of continuing to use the B100 biofuel.
