Spanish firms unveil new truck trailer that can absorb carbon dioxide
Spanish relay-based freight transport operator Trucksters, together with mural painters Taruga Creaciones, have unveiled a truck trailer that can absorb carbon dioxide in a similar manner to a tree.
The trailer, which was presented in Madrid yesterday as part of European Mobility Week, uses photocatalytic paint from Graphenstone, a material that absorbs CO2 from the air via the incidence of light.
In addition, the special paint prevents the growth of viruses and bacteria of all kinds due to its composition containing silver ions.
It is said that the trailer, adorned with the slogan “This mural removes CO2 from the air”, can absorb about 25% CO2 as a typical tree can.
The trailer will be seen on trucks deployed on Truckster’s relay routes that link Spain with Benelux, Germany and Poland.
Together, both Trucksters and Taruga Creaciones plan to produce more of the trailers to boost their sustainability programs.
