High strength steel boosts refuse collection efficiency
The use of high strength steels is being continuously developed by designers around the world, in an effort to achieve lighter, stronger and more energy-efficient products. Labrie Environmental Group, the Canadian refuse collection truck manufacturer, has succeeded in lowering the weight of its latest model by around 500 kg, at the same time increasing the strength and capacity of the vehicle. The truck is one of four entries nominated for the Swedish Steel Prize 2009.
