Recyclable collection in Porto with natural gas vehicles
Porto is getting greener by the day, with the new vehicles for recyclable trash collection running on natural gas. The recycling collection all across town is carried out with "green" vehicles in order to reduce pollution and improve the carbon footprint.
Lipor, the inter municipal entity for collection, treatment and valuation of the urban solid waste handed over two natural gas vehicles to the city of Porto, for recyclable collection of garbage in the city. The associated municipalities were handed over a total of 13 vehicles.
This project was financed by the PROSEUR programme, in a total investment of 1.9 million euros.
Natural gas is an energy source with a promising future, it is both cost effective and it has a positive environmental impact. It will help increase recyclable garbage collection and it decreases pollution in urban areas.
This is another step forward regarding Porto sustainable policy established by Mayor Rui Moreira and his team.
