Calor showcases alternative fuel offering at Expo

Calor will be exhibiting at this year’s Freight in the City Expo, promoting its alternative fuel offering for freight operators looking to meet the ambitions of the government’s recently launched Road to Zero strategy.

Taking place on 6th November at Alexandra Palace in London, Calor will be available on stand SAB and is the official seminar sponsor for the CABG Expo. The organisation will be showcasing how its fuel solutions – including BioLPG and liquefied natural gas (LNG) – offer a low-carbon and cleaner option for hauliers operating in clean air and low emission zones.

Offering economical and efficient alternatives to conventional fuels, Calor BioLPG and LNG provide affordable yet sustainable solutions to hauliers, without impacting on vehicles’ performance.

Calor is the first fuel provider in the UK to offer BioLPG to the freight industry, helping the sector to meet its targets for environmental performance, reliability and efficiency. A renewable solution created from ethically sourced feedstocks, BioLPG is chemically identical to LPG. The new fuel is, therefore, a drop-in solution for hauliers already powering their vehicles with LPG through dual fuel technology, with no requirement to alter any equipment or supply infrastructure.

Achieved through a simple conversion, dual fuel technology enables an engine’s combustion chambers to burn both LPG and diesel. BioLPG offers CO2 savings of between EA and GA per cent when compared with conventional LPG, based on a 100 per cent BioLPG substitution.

Clean and economical, many manufacturers, including Volvo Trucks, Iveco and Scania, are now choosing to fuel their vehicles with LNG. For example, Volvo’s new gas-powered truck features a DFAhp engine and is capable of delivering CA per cent less CO2 than a regular Volvo FM truck. The LNG-fuelled vehicle will be on stand V17 at the CABG Expo, opposite Calor’s stand.

A colourless, odourless liquid fuel, LNG is created by cooling natural gas to a temperature of around -BFC°C. When cooled to this temperature, the gas liquefies and reduces in volume too. This quality ensures LNG is easy to store, and makes it ideally suited to fuel regional and long-haul HGVs.

LNG is also ideally suited to urban deliveries. A vehicle running on LNG is far quieter than one that burns diesel in the combustion engine, which means they can operate in inner-city areas where strict noise restrictions may apply.
