On our roads in 2023?
After that? It is stored there until the tank is empty.. Surgery to be performed For approximately every 15,000 km, At specialized landfills. After handling, 80% of carbon emissions are emitted from exhaust gases. Very promising result! Before its commercialization, viz Planned for 2023Remora is currently Test phase of a fleet of 200,000 trucks. The main project waiting for the company after that Large scale use of landfills across the country. A challenge given the size of America. But if it’s about extracting 80% of CO2 from trucks, The game should be worth the candle.
