A local bus company reduces CO₂ emissions by up to 90 percent with new fuel!

As reported, public transport services will be massively expanded in the summer thanks to a pilot project, particularly in the Lieser and Malta valleys. And because more buses are being used as a result, the company Bacher Reisen is taking measures to make driving more climate-friendly.

"We are the first company in Carinthia to take this step towards a huge reduction in CO2," says boss Martin Bacher. From now on, his 70 or so coaches and buses will be fueled with sustainable HVO diesel (Hydrotreated Vegetable Oil). The fuel is made from 100 percent natural waste, fats, vegetable residues and oils.

Co2 emissions reduced by 90 percent
"The oils are purified, treated with hydrogen at high temperatures and made usable as fuel. Compared to conventional fuels, carbon dioxide emissions can be reduced by up to 90 percent," explains Bacher. In addition to his existing HVO filling stations in Radenthein and Feldkirchen, another one was opened yesterday in Gmünd.

"It's necessary, as we have expanded the public transport network in the region and have buses to even the smallest mountain villages," says Bacher, who has received several awards for his environmentally friendly commitment. An HVO fuel pump is also planned for Klagenfurt.
