Biogas operation in two terms:
* Cooperation with local experts
Hajdú Volán started cooperation with local experts on the compilation of a Study of the parameters for using biodiesel and biogas in the public transport of Debrecen. Besides, the company asked the suppliers to make and send a bid for the consumables that are needed for the CNG conversion. The company also keeps close cooperation with the experts of the University of Debrecen in form of regular local meetings. The University has gathered information in Békés county, in Budapest and at Kunhegyes about the availability of the raw materials required for the biofuel types and the technical conditions and development plans and directions.
