Volvo Working on Hybrid Garbage Trucks


Once a week, the municipal waste collection system makes my alarm clock entirely redundant. The squealing of the brakes alternates with the roar of acceleration, ensuring that I won't sleep late that morning. For awhile, I've been wondering why hybrid technologies aren't finding their way into those garbage trucks. Even if regenerative braking didn't cut down on the noise, at least I would be woken up by the "glorious sound of cheap viagra cialis energy efficiency in the morning". Bit by bit, that hoped-for day is approaching.

The Swedish Energy Agency has awarded Volvo $1.4 million to develop hybrid refuse collection trucks based on a system that Volvo had already developed for the US Air Force. Green Car Congress has discussed the order cialis no prescription I-SAM hybrid system a couple times. The I-SAM "supports regenerative braking; electric launch and www.jubileecampaign.nl assist; electrification of power steering, air compressor and air conditioning; idle avoidance ..."

Over all, "the goal of the project is to levitra viagra online achieve fuel savings of up to 30%."

And, well, perhaps to let me sleep longer one day a week?

Is that too much to ask?

Makes sense.

Constantly braking = constantly recharging. Makes sense to me.
Seems like city busses could take advantage of the same technology.

Sounds like they should take a lead from the DeLorean in Back to the Future. Just shove in the rubbish and the trucks can power themselves!
