Choosing forged aluminium wheels offers unequivocal advantages. Not only for fleets and manufacturers, but also for cities, municipalities, citizens and tax payers
- and more importantly - the environment. Forged aluminium Alcoa Wheels are fitted
on a number of hybrid buses. The essential parameters are systematically measured
and compared with buses fitted on steel wheels. Over the period of 6 to 7 months significant
fuel savings of over 1% on the hybrid buses are reported, defining further cost savings and
stating a clear contribution to a greener environment.
Alcoa Wheels dramatically cut the carbon footprint of commercial vehicles: • Replacing 12 steel wheels with aluminium cuts 13.3 metric tons of CO₂ emissions over the lifetime of the wheels (1,5 million km) • Alcoa Wheels are Cradle to Cradle CertifiedCM, confirming that they are a safe and environmentally conscious product
