Lidl and McCulla Introduces Green Transport Fleet to Tackle Climate Change

Concept: Lidl Northern Ireland (Lidl) and McCulla Transport (McCulla), a Lisburn logistics company have co-launched a fully green transport fleet powered by waste-to-energy generation. The new sustainable transport fleet aims to deliver better efficiencies and reduces Lidl’s carbon emissions of these vehicles by 93%.

Nature of Disruption: The new green transport fleet consists of eight bio-methane-powered trucks. It uses the food waste collected from 41 Lidl stores in North Ireland. Using that, McCulla then creates a fully renewable bio-methane gas at its anaerobic digester (AD) plant in Lisburn. The bio-methane gas acts as the primary fuel source for the vehicles and powers a sustainable transport operation that further delivers produce to the Lidl stores. The fleet covers more than 2,300 road miles a day and safely delivers fresh food to more than 300,000 weekly customers across Lidl’s regional store network. This new transport is a step towards decarbonizing the energy system by replacing fossil-fuelled transport with green transport.

Outlook: Low emissions transport is one of the sustainable solutions that can help reverse climate change. Lidl and McCulla introduced the green transport fleet, an integrated waste-to-energy sustainable transport model, to help tackle climate change. This is not only good for the climate but also creates green jobs and benefits the environment.
