Brandrisker relaterade till avändandet av gasbussar: En teknisk översikt
Independent thesis Basic level (professional degree), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
The purpose of this report is to clarify the risks with CNG buses and how these risks could be approached to avoid unfortunate incidents. The risks involved in driving with compressed natural gas as fuel are different compared to diesel and ethanol fuelled buses, and it is important for everyone involved to recognize these differences for a safer environment. It is not within the frame of this report to decide whether CNG or diesel is the more safe type of fuel, but the need to distinguish the risks is great. At present, there is a large increase in the number of gas buses in Sweden, and there are plans for even bigger increases in the Swedish urban areas. The city of Stockholm, Gothenburg and the overall region of Skåne increase their numbers of gas buses rapidly and there is no declining trend. Finally, there is a general need for more information about CNG on all levels in organizations working with these types of buses today, since increased knowledge means increased safety.
