During the demo use of the hybrid refuse collection trucks, a significant reduction in noise emission was recorded. The noise pollution for the surrounding area, the driver and the operator of the lifting and tipping device was considerably reduced compared to a conventional vehicle.

It was perceived as having been halved (a reduction of more than 10 dB(A)) and consequently the reactions from workers and residents were always very positive.

The results so far also permit expectation of reasonable potential for reducing fuel consumption and thus also CO2-emissions.
