Presenting the Trailer aerodynamics feature video from RTL 7

Every day thousands of trailers ride the Dutch roads. Trucks pulling trailers use enormous amounts of fossil fuels. Currently available technologies offer the possibility of decreasing fuel consumption while minimizing C02 emissions. WABCO has developed aerodynamic solutions for trailers to lower the environmental impact of commercial vehicles. Dr. Gandert Van Raemdonck, WABCO’s Head of Research and Development for Aerodynamics, provides insight into these aerodynamic devices which are called OptiFlow Side Wings and Tail.

'Doe Maar Duurzaam' is an informative program on RTL7 that presents developments and innovations for sustainability. Video is also available on YouTube, includes audio in Dutch and captions in English language.
