Toyota Material Handling Europe is accelerating its efforts to minimize the use of fossil fuels in their production. During 2019, the use of liquefied petroleum gas in the factory of Toyota Material Handling Manufacturing Sweden will be replaced with liquid biogas.
The cooperation between Toyota Material Handling Europe’s production facility in Mjölby, Sweden and regional biogas producer Tekniska Verken i Linköping AB is the first of its kind in Sweden. It supports a long-term strategy initiated four years ago.
“In 2015, we converted all electricity in our facility to green electricity via hydropower. The transition from liquefied petroleum gas to liquid biogas is also an important part of our overall sustainability strategy: minimising fossil fuel in our production activities”, said Kristian Björkman, Managing Director at Toyota Material Handling Manufacturing Sweden.
