Volvo has introduced two new trucks, the Volvo FH and Volvo FM, which run on liquefied natural gas (LNG) and biogas.

The use of biogas allows you to achieve zero carbon emissions and reduce CO2 emissions by up to 100%.

Volvo notes that LNG trucks are currently the most commercially viable alternative to conventional diesel for long-haul heavy hauls.

“This fuel is available in sufficient quantities and at a competitive price. The use of more trucks with gas engines in the long term creates favorable conditions for the transition to an active use of liquefied biogas,” said Lars Martensson, Director of Environment and Innovation Volvo Trucks.




The Volvo Trucks LPG and Natural Gas powertrain offers comparable energy efficiency to diesel engines, but significantly less CO2 emissions.

The use of liquefied biogas, also known as liquid biofuels (Bio-LNG), reduces net emissions by 100% “tank to wheel” (TTW), and the use of natural gas reduces emissions by about 20% (TTW) compared to conventional diesel European standard.

Electromobility using hydrogen fuel cells can reduce the need for long-haul batteries in the long term.

“While hydrogen fuel cell technology is a promising development, there are still practical and financial barriers that need to be overcome before it can provide significant climatic benefits for the transport of super heavy cargo,” added Martensson.
