Leading Canadian integrated resource management company Emterra Group has ordered a Mack LR Electric Class 8 refuse vehicle to help the company fulfill its environmental and sustainability goals. The Mack LR Electric will be the first battery-electric vehicle in Emterra’s fleet that will service the Peel Region in Ontario in Canada. The Mack LR Electric refuse model will help the Peel Region, one of the fastest growing regions in Canada, to achieve its GHG reduction ambitions and was the primary reason Emterra chose to operate the vehicle there. Emterra currently operates 150 refuse vehicles in Peel Region, most of which are powered by Compressed Natural Gas.In 2019, Peel’s Regional Council declared a climate emergency and approved the Region’s Climate Change Master Plan. The plan has an interim target of reducing greenhouse gas emissions by 45% below 2010 levels by 2030 and enabling the community’s transition to a low carbon and resilient Community for Life.
