ABB will enable the transition to sustainable e-bus operations in the city of Basel by 2027 as part of a large order awarded by Industrielle Werke Basel (IWB). The contract is part of Basel Public Transport's (BVB) efforts to convert its entire bus fleet to battery-electric operations. In one of Switzerland's largest infrastructure projects, BVB is fulfilling the legal requirement that all public transport in the canton of Basel-Stadt must run on 100 percent renewable energy by 2027.
In the course of the mobility transition, electric and hybrid drives will gradually replace the traditional combustion engine. The battery is a key element in electrification: More and more manufacturers are starting their own production of battery systems and are looking for suitable solutions to do so.
In parallel with its major project to increase global capacity of bio-based polyamide 11 by 50% in Singapore, Arkema announces the construction of a polyamide 11 powders plant on its Changshu platform in China, scheduled to come on stream in the first quarter of 2023. This investment will further support the growing demand for advanced bio-circular materials in Asia.
HERE Technologies, the leading location data and technology platform, today announced its partnership with Bridgestone, a global leader in tires and rubber providing solutions for safe and sustainable mobility.
