Transforming Transportation with Renewable Energy
In a groundbreaking collaboration with Italian energy giant ENI, AGC’s esteemed glass transport partner, Lannutti, has embraced ENI HVOlution, a diesel fuel derived entirely from renewable sources. This strategic shift from standard fuel to HVO (Hydrotreated Vegetable Oil) fuels marks a significant milestone in AGC’s mission to create a greener supply chain.
A Sustainable Fuel Solution
HVOlution, exclusively produced from biogenic raw materials such as used cooking oil and vegetable oil processing waste, ensures zero competition with the food chain. ENI’s establishment of agri-hubs in various African countries facilitates the supply chain. Pure HVO demonstrates a remarkable 60 to 90 percent reduction in CO2 emissions across the supply chain compared to conventional fossil blends, depending on the feedstock used.
AGC’s Environmental Commitment
By adopting ENI HVOlution for glass transportation in Italy, AGC takes a significant stride forward on its carbon roadmap for Scope 3 emissions. The calculated reduction in CO2 emissions per year stands at 204 tonnes (WTW) and 3661 tonnes (TTW) compared to conventional diesel, based on the year 2022 data. This achievement aligns with AGC’s dedication to carbon neutrality by 2050, fostering eco-friendly logistics and sustainable practices.
Davide Cappellino, President Architectural Glass Europe & Americas at AGC, expresses his enthusiasm, stating, “We are leading the way in our Carbon Roadmap, committed to reducing AGC’s scope 3 emissions. Our partnership with Lannutti, our historical logistics partner, reflects our joint dedication to eco-friendly logistics and progress.”
