Electrification of the waste and recycling sector is gaining momentum, as local authorities across the UK strive to reduce their carbon footprint and improve air quality.

Many have now plugged into the potential and practicality of electric refuse trucks, and this webinar will explore how they are performing in real-life waste cycles, as well as looking at the robust test cycles in place for emerging technology and grants being adapted to help operators make the switch on their fleets.

Confirmed speakers:

  • Andy Graves, Product Marketing Manager, Dennis Eagle
  • Matt Ralfe, Innovation & Change Manager, Nottingham City Council
  • Brian Robinson, Commercial Vehicle Emissions Consultant, Zemo Partnership

First, we'll be looking at the eCollect in action today in waste operations across the UK, explaining vehicle range, independent testing results, recharging options and full maintenance support available for operators looking to make the switch to electric.

You'll then learn about Nottingham City Council’s journey towards electrifying its transport operation and overcoming barriers such as funding, maintenance and charging infrastructure to now having one of the broadest fleets of EVs in the country.

Finally, we'll look at the range of robust testing taking place to enable alternative fuelled commercial vehicles to become eligible for plug-in grants, plus a look at some of the work Zemo Partnership has been undertaking to provide operators with clear guidance and support in transitioning to new technology.

You’ll also have the opportunity to engage directly with our speakers in an interactive Q & A session and find out whether electric would be a good fit for your operation.

The event is completely free to attend and takes place on Thursday 22 April at 10.30 am on Zoom. Simply register online to receive the webinar link.
