INEGI alongside CaetanoBus for CO2-neutral mobility

29 November 2023
Accelerate the development and industrialization, by 2025, of mobility products to promote carbon neutrality. This is the objective of the BE.neutral innovation agenda, one of the 23 innovation agendas, supported by the Recovery and Resilience Plan (PRR), which has the contribution of INEGI.

One of the pillars of this agenda is a consortium led by CaetanoBus, whose mission is to create a new bus with zero CO2 emissions.

"This is a light bus for the public transport market, powered by lithium or hydrogen, built with composite materials, which has a positive impact on the durability and weight of the vehicle. Lower weight in the bus structure results in a lower energy input for the vehicle. move, therefore, greater energy efficiency by directly increasing autonomy. It's a challenge that focuses on investing in «clean» mobility and we therefore aim to reach the maturity phase necessary for industrialization", explains Carlos Ferreira, responsible for the project at INEGI.

INEGI's team is responsible for developing integrated systems made up of composite material structures, and will also collaborate in the development of certification tests.

The BE.neutral agenda is led by NOS Comunicações and has 40 partners. It is financed by the European Union through Next Generation EU and the Recovery and Resilience Plan (PRR), within the scope of the Business Capitalization and Innovation operational program.
