Paris 13th district opts for 100% carbon-free waste collection using 18 electric Renault Trucks vehicles

SEPUR, an expert in waste collection and management, has taken delivery of 18 Renault Trucks E-Tech D Wide to collect household waste throughout the 13th district of Paris. These all-electric refuse collection vehicles are already criss-crossing the streets of the French capital to collect waste from the 180,000 residents of the district, with no local CO2 emissions or noise pollution.  

To meet the carbon footprint reduction and climate change targets set out in the Paris Climate Plan, the waste of the inhabitants of Paris 13th district is now collected by all-electric refuse trucks. This is a major step forward by the municipality in reducing its environmental impact and improving the quality of life of its residents.

To collect the waste of the 180,000 inhabitants of the 13th district of Paris on a daily basis, Sepur, an expert in waste collection and management, has put a fleet of exclusively electric trucks into service. From now on, 18 Renault Trucks E-Tech D Wide bodied by Semat will carry out around one hundred collections per week, which means that 21 tonnes of CO2 emissions will be avoided per week compared with collections carried out using trucks running on natural gas.

Sepur and Renault Trucks, two partners committed to decarbonising transport

Sepur and Renault Trucks have made strong commitments and are pursuing ambitious policies to reduce the environmental footprint of their activities: 

"It's in our DNA to offer local authorities the most sustainable transport possible. Since 2014, we’ve been converting our fleet to reduce our greenhouse gas emissions. We’ve set ourselves the goal of eliminating diesel-powered vehicles from all our collections by 2025”, announced Sepur CEO, Youri Ivanov. 

"Electric mobility is the cornerstone of Renault Trucks' strategy for carbon-free transport. We're aiming for 50% of our sales to be electric by 2030 and, by 2040, all the vehicles we sell will run entirely without fossil fuels”, explained Bruno Blin, President of Renault Trucks. "The commissioning of these 18 electric refuse collection vehicles marks an important step in the city's progress towards clean and sustainable mobility. We are proud to play a role in this, alongside Sepur.”
