According to the statement, the pilot test is carried out in collaboration with companies such as LIDL, Coca-Cola and Elis, with the logistics operators involved being Atlantic Cargo, HAVI, Transportes J Amaral and Transportes Florêncio Silva.

According to a report by NM, 400,000 litres of 100 percent renewable diesel will be used over three months, which translates into savings of over 1,100 tonnes of CO2. This is equivalent to 27 plane trips between Lisbon and New York.

It should be recalled that since last year, Repsol has been carrying out several pilot tests in Spain, in order to decarbonise heavy road transport.

Advanced biofuels and synthetic fuels are zero net emissions and are essential for the decarbonisation of sectors where electrification is more difficult, such as heavy road transport, aviation and the marine industry.
