A person’s profession or a vehicle that cleans streets may both be referred to as a “street sweeper” or “street cleaner.” Since cleanliness and garbage collection became a concern, street sweepers have been engaged in cities as “sanitation workers”.
A street sweeper would use a broom and shovel to remove accumulated trash, animal faeces, and dirt from streets. Later, the streets were cleaned with water hoses. When there was a lot of horse-drawn or road traffic, street cleaners occasionally collected specific horse droppings since they were valuable as fertiliser for the neighbouring rural areas.
The U.S. street sweeper market accounted for $XX Billion in 2022 and is anticipated to reach $XX Billion by 2030, registering a CAGR of XX% from 2023 to 2030.
Development of Zero-Emission Street Sweepers by Ideanomics. In order to help Global Environmental Products (GEP) build 62 zero-emission street sweepers, U.S. Hybrid is providing GEP with its specialised electric and hybrid electric propulsion systems.
The first hybrid electric street sweepers were introduced in New York City by GEP and U.S. Hybrid, and since then, additional Japanese clients have received additional units. A first-of-its-kind, totally electric, supercharged street sweeper was used in New York by GEP and U.S. Hybrid to clean up famous Times Square.
GEP will give California’s Department of Transportation 17 electric street sweepers. In addition, the business has committed to provide New York City with 30 electric street sweepers that are plug-in hybrids and seven all-electric street sweepers.
Two more GEP all-electric street sweepers have been ordered by the City of South San Francisco, three more have been ordered by the City of Washington D.C., and two have been ordered by the City of Helena, Montana.
The exclusive technology of US Hybrid will be present in all sweepers.Street sweepers made by GEP in San Bernardino, California, are both hybrid and entirely electric. Over the course of its lifetime, an all-electric street sweeper eliminates roughly 90 metric tonnes of carbon emissions from entering the atmosphere and is far quieter than sweepers powered by a combustion engine.
