Chiang Mai University on Sunday rolled out 40 new electric buses, bought at a cost of over Bt50 million. These buses will be used instead of the old electric buses, which had provided services to 5.7 million people.

 

Clinical Professor Niwes Nantachit, president of Chiang Mai University, said lithium iron phosphate batteries enabled the buses to provide services with a daily one-time charge.

 

He said these electric buses would provide services throughout the university area every day from 7am to 10pm, adding that it could help reduce greenhouse gas emissions by 1,650 tonnes of carbon dioxide.

"Each electric bus can accommodate up to 16 passengers, while passengers can check the electric bus locations, routes, and number of passengers inside via CMU Mobile smartphone application," he said.

So they were already green, just an upgrade? 

I wonder what the "carbon footprint" is in disposing/scrapping the old busses, especially the batteries?

Per day?  Per month?  Per year?  Per their expected useful life?
