Carbon dioxide-neutral transports

Switching to renewable fuels is one of the keys to reducing the carbon dioxide emissions of the transport sector. Renewable fuels are produced from a renewable source, such as biomass, and production processes that add no excess carbon dioxide to the atmosphere.The Volvo Group is actively exploring and developing technologies that operate on renewable or alternative fuels.

Assessment of sustainability features of
fuel categories

The Volvo Group has conducted research on several renewable fuels assessed from seven aspects and from a well-to-wheel perspective. All of these renewable fuels have the potential to reduce carbon dioxide emissions from transports.

The results may vary for a particular fuel depending on the production process used.
