As well as providing concepts for bus routes and cycle paths, plans also take into account the delivery traffic that supplies the city with food and goods. When it comes to waste-disposal services for moving refuse out of the city, the Mercedes-Benz Econic is set to play an important role.
Paris, Prague, Berlin, Valencia and, most recently, Singapore -the list of cities where the benefits of Econic are in demand is growing constantly. And now Mexico too is focusing its attention on the clean-cut clean-up machine. During the 16th UN Climate Conference, taking place between 29 November and 10 December 2010 at the coastal resort of Cancun, Mercedes-Benz is showcasing the Econic NGT 2628 6×2/4 NLA, a three-axle vehicle that weighs in at 26 tonnes gross weight.
In Stockholm, the Econic is powered by biogas produced in Sweden from waste water and a proportion of household refuse, meaning that not only is the vehicle an environmentally-friendly way to empty refuse bins, but it is also actively reducing the waste mountain too. Sweden has almost seven years’ experience in this field. Now Mexico City too wants to try out a similar concept in order to address its pressing environmental problems.
