Stockholmsmässan is switching fuel and reducing its climate footprint

Rikard Skärebo, Production Manager at Stockholmsmässan.

Following extensive trials, Stockholmsmässan is now switching to 100% renewable fuel, in the form of hydrotreated vegetable oil (HVO) to power the company’s entire fleet of vehicles.

Stockholmsmässan is the first Swedish exhibition center to convert its entire fleet of vehicles to run on 100% renewable fuel. Using Triboron technology and filling the tank with vegetable oil will cut fuel consumption by 5%. This in turn will make Stockholmsmässan’s CO2 emissions 45 tonnes lower per year, thus meeting one of the exhibition center's sustainability targets for 2020.

Following extensive trials, Stockholmsmässan is now switching to 100% renewable fuel, in the form of hydrotreated vegetable oil (HVO) to power the company’s entire fleet of vehicles. Triboron technology will also be used to cut consumption. Vehicles that previously ran on diesel will not require converting in order to use the new fuel.

“I am very pleased to be switching to 100% renewable fuel, while at the same time bringing consumption down. This is part of Stockholmsmässan’s contribution to a better climate and supports our continued work towards a sustainable meeting place in ‘The Capital of Scandinavia’. We are the first in the exhibition industry to make this move, and it will represent a major step on the road to a sustainable future,” says Rikard Skärebo, Production Manager at Stockholmsmässan.

Combining Triboron technology with the biofuel will deliver an average 5% reduction in the amount of fuel used by Stockholmsmässan’s vehicles. On an annual basis, that will save over a tonne of fuel, leading to a considerable decrease in CO2 emissions of 45 tonnes per year.

“Stockholmsmässan is a prime example of a company that truly prioritizes sustainability. By converting their fleet to biofuel and incorporating Triboron technology, they are reducing their climate footprint right here and now. Hopefully, this will inspire more companies and public agencies to follow suit,” comments Pär Krossling, CEO of Triboron.
