  • Trucks: 10 heavy-duty trucks powered by renewable natural gas and 4 by biodiesel or hydrogenated vegetable oil.
  • Distance: Covering 7,200 miles across nine countries.
  • Performance: Each truck can travel about 1,000 miles between refuels.

Key Insights:

  • Fuel Efficiency: These fuels significantly cut emissions compared to regular diesel.
  • Infrastructure Gaps: Limited refueling stations mean relying on regular fuels at times.
  • Green Credentials: Metallica’s efforts highlight the potential and challenges of sustainable trucking.

Iveco's CEO, Gerrit Marx, noted the importance of this initiative: “Renewable natural gas and hydrogenated vegetable oil are more available and ready than batteries and hydrogen.”

By integrating renewable energy into their operations, Metallica is setting a new standard for eco-friendly tours.
