Eco Plus rail option helps to green the supply chain

October 26 - A German company is on track to reduce CO2 output having switched to Deutsche Bahn's (DB) Eco Plus service.

Mülheim an der Ruhr-based Europipe uses Eco Plus on the Mülheim-Brake route, which it uses for the carriage of pipes for the planned Baltic Sea pipeline. Up to three block trains consisting of 27 freight cars, each carrying 108 pipes, travel on this route daily. Savings of 300 tonnes of CO2 are now achieved on these transports compared with standard rail transport, says the railway.

 

Jens HäselhoffEuropipe senior manager logistics, says: "Since the middle of August we have opted for renewable energy sources for the transport of our pipes from Mülheim to Brake. By the time the project is completed, a total volume of 90,000 tonnes will have been carried on this carbon-free option."

 

The carbon-free transport option and the procurement of the energy used have been verified by the technical supervisory authority TÜV SÜDDB uses ten percent of the revenues from Eco Plus to finance the construction of new production plant for renewable energy.
