Abstract

In order to reduce the CO2 emissions in the transportation, one can switch to biofuel or to capture the carbon dioxide on board. This implies the study of the integration of an on board CO2 capture unit and the storage of the captured CO2 between two stops in the refueling station. Truck transport use for goods delivery is an attractive fleet as the trucks are used on a limited radius and return to the parking every day, allowing to limit the storage requirement. In this study, we are going to analyse the possible integration of an absorbent based CO2 capture unit in a delivery company truck.
