Hybrid drive line for urban solid waste collection and compaction A Pini Prato, M. Repetto & G. Schiappacasse Department DIMSET, Genoa University, Italy. Abstract The abatement of polluting gas emission generated by road transport represents an important need of our contemporary civilization. This subject has consequently become a research theme on a world scale. From this point of view, the hybrid-series technology is arousing a great interest as it represents a currently feasible solution capable of providing encouraging results under all the aspects of low environmental impact, performance, costs and feasibility. Hybrid technology is particularly appreciated for fleets of vehicles used for public transport within urban agglomerations; a broad expertise has been developed and acquired on the local service buses running in Italy (Genoa, Rome, Terni) in addition to traditional means. The subject of this study is concerned with a new application consisting in the realization of a hybrid-series v
