Turning words into action – walking the talk – is required in our work and commitment to questions of sustainability. At Linköping University we take these words extremely seriously, with our measures to ensure sustainability and efficient energy use.

We have chosen to showcase this work in an exhibition of the same name –  Walk the Talk – at both Campus Valla and Campus Norrköping. 

The exhibition is public, free of charge, and accessible all year round. Follow the exhibition pathway by following the points marked on the map at each campus. Map over the exhibition Walk the talk - station Biogas, Campus Valla.Map over the exhibition Walk the talk - station Biogas, Campus Valla.

Green miles with a LiU car

Location: Campus Valla, the parking lot by the A Building

Did you know that at LiU cars run mostly on renewable fuels? Biogas is extracted from, for example, food waste or organic residues. The benefit of biofuels is that they are part of a natural cycle and do not affect the greenhouse effect during combustion. Our food waste can thus contribute to greener miles.

Biogas in the LiU cars

Some people claim that neither biogas, ethanol or electricity are truly clean or climate-sensitive fuels. This is partially true – depending on how these fuels are produced it may be the case that so much fossil fuel is used during the production that the climate benefit is reduced. This may be particularly true for electricity, which in many parts of Europe is produced in coal-fired power stations. Even so – biogas is currently the vehicle fuel that is most sensitive to the environment, and the biogas produced in Linköping has a very advantageous environmental profile. This is why we plan to continue to use biogas in the LiU cars.
