Zero-emission construction machinery
Construction sites are the source of various forms of pollution, such as material waste, visible dust, noise, and vibration. But they also produce air pollution, especially nitrogen oxides (NOx) and particulate matter (PM). A new report by Bellona takes a closer look into the potential of electrified construction site machinery, the solutions which exist today, the current policy and market advances in this regard. It goes on to provide some forward-looking policy recommendations, drawing on EU legislation that is undergoing reform, and pending transposition at national levels.
