Clean Fuels, Clean Vehicles, Cleaner City

14/06/2011 to 15/06/2011

On 15-16 June, CIVITAS ARCHIMEDES, CIVITAS VANGUARD and the BIOSIRE projects organised a joint event on alternative fuels and vehicles entitled ‘Clean Fuels, Clean Vehicles, Cleaner Cities’.  The event gathered together professionals from CIVITAS cities and beyond who were keen to learn about the work done on clean fuels and vehicles in CIVITAS cities, as well as the results of relevant projects including BIOSIRE.

The event was opened by the new Mayor of San Sebastian Juan Karlos Izagirre as one of his first acts in his first week in office. The presentations from CIVITAS cities included those from San Sebastian, Aalborg,  Brighton & Hove, La Rochelle, Rotterdam and  Stockholm, as well as industry representatives, and other relevant European projects (BIOSIRE, COMPRO). These showcased the work of the cities from 2nd generation biofuels to electric vehicles.

The conference was complemented by sessions which encouraged feedback from the users: with roundtable sessions organised by the BIOSIRE project, and discussion about clean vehicle procurement from leading CIVITAS cities Stockholm and Rotterdam.  A tour of the DBus workshop in San Sebastian showed participants some new additions in the city including hybrid buses and the biodiesel mixing station as well as electric car and flexfuel car used in the region.
