China Turns to Ethanol-powered Buses from Sweden to Reduce Greenhouse Gas Emissions

China is turning to ethanol-powered buses from Sweden to help reduce greenhouse gas emissions. An ethanol-powered bus made from up north – Sweden (the bus is the same color as Sweden’s flag) is seen on the streets of Beijing, capital of the middle kingdom.

An ethanol-powered environmentally-friendly bus can reduce greenhouse gas emissions and meet Euro-V emission standards. But, the 18 million people in Beijing will need more than just one of these buses, no?

China and India are the world’s biggest polluters these days. But, China is making an attempt…or so I feel from my reading. Yeah, the country could do more. Gosh, I could do more.

We wonder, how many more buses China is planning on buying from Sweden or otherwise?
