Properly cleaning up in Aarhus: low-noise and locally CO2-neutral waste disposal made possible with the eEconic.
In a world that is increasingly moving towards clean and green energy, it needs companies, cities and mobility solutions that are at the forefront of this transformation. Three such pioneers in waste management are Denmark's second largest city Aarhus, the company Urbaser A/S and Mercedes-Benz Special Trucks with its battery-powered eEconic.
In Aarhus, on the east coast of Jutland, the municipality has been making efforts to improve public transport and promote the use of electric vehicles for many years. At the same time, Aarhus introduced advanced waste management and recycling programmes aimed at reducing the amount of landfill waste and recycling resources efficiently.
Pioneers in sustainability.
An important partner in this green strategy is Urbaser A/S, a global pioneer in sustainability. The company offers innovative environmental solutions and circular economy models in 19 countries. With an impressive network of over 50,000 employees, it serves more than 70 million people. Urbaser A/S is also the world's largest customer for the new eEconic – the vehicle with which Mercedes-Benz Special Trucks ushered in a new era in 2022. In cities such as Copenhagen and Vejle, Urbaser A/S already has the low-floor truck with its two electric motors in operation as a refuse collection vehicle.
