WIN Waste Innovations uses collected waste to power two Mack electric collection vehicles
WIN Waste Innovations, a Massachusetts-based recycling and waste collector, has recently received two Mack LR Electric Class 8 collection vehicles. WIN Waste is powering these two electric collection vehicles exclusively with the waste each truck collects.
"Mack Trucks looks forward to working with WIN Waste and their customers to help them achieve their environmental goals," said Jonathan Randall, president of Mack Trucks North America. "Mack is committed to offering solutions that offer zero emissions and help improve sustainability for a cleaner environment."
The two Mack LR Electric vehicles will each collect 150 cubic yards of waste per day on service routes in Boston, Massachusetts. The waste will be converted into renewable energy to charge the LR Electric vehicles, as well as provide converted renewable energy to homes and businesses in the region. It is estimated that this will eliminate the need for about 2,000 gallons of diesel fuel per year.
WIN Waste operates 50 collection, transfer, and disposal assets, including waste-to-energy facilities, transfer solutions, ash monofils, landfills, and fleets of rail cars and collection vehicles. WIN Waste recycles more than 354,000 tons of plastic, paper, and metals from the waste stream and converts more than 6.4 million tons of post-recycled waste into renewable energy.
"Electric trucks are a natural progression of WIN Waste's emphasis on sustainability and circularity," said Dan Mayo, chief executive officer of WIN Waste Innovations. "By recharging our Mack LR Electric trucks using the energy generated from the very waste they collect, we are actively bolstering our own sustainability goals, as well as those of our customers."
The Mack LR Electric offers a standard 376 kWh total battery capacity for 42 percent more energy and an increased range between vehicle charges. Twin electric motors produce 448 continuous horsepower and 4,051 lb.-ft. of peak torque output from zero RPM.
