Abstract [en]

In order to test the greenhouse gas reduction measures from the EU funded project Swiftly Green, the Swedish Transport Administration initiated Get Greener evaluating three measures in the Scan-Med transport corridor;

  • 34m trucks between Gothenburg-Malmö and Stockholm-Malmö fuelled by HVO or biogas (LBG)
  • 730m electric trains between Malmö–Hallsberg fuelled by hydro power generated electricity
  • Environmental and climate considerations in the construction of the Varberg rail tunnel.

The study shows that the two transport solutions fulfil the Swedish 2045 GHG-emission targets already today. Thus it does not seem to be significant technical obstacles to achieve transport climate targets. The results indicate that by implementing measures it is possible to reach the ambitious 2045 GHG-emissions targets already by 2030. A European or global perspective may challenge this conclusion since availability of biomass and green electricity could become a bottleneck. Therefore, the challenge lies in how to scale this up in a sustainable way.
