Vehicles running on renewable fuels
The Volvo Group’s ability to produce carbon dioxide-neutral vehicles has already been demonstrated in several vehicles. The research and development within this area continues, in order to present new products running on renewable fuels.
In 2007 the Group produced seven demonstration trucks that were adapted to run on seven renewable fuels. In 2010 the Volvo Group developed an airport snow sweeper running on methane diesel and in 2012 started the series production of the Volvo FM Methane Diesel truck.

In the framework of the BioDME project funded by the EU and the Swedish Energy Agency, the Volvo Group, together with a number of players including BioDME producer Chemrec and fuel distributor Preem, developed a transport system that encompasses the entire chain from production and distribution of BioDME to operation in Volvo trucks in a number of haulage firms.
