Mitsubishi will supply battery systems from its i-MiEV to the Kyokuto Kaihatsu Kogyo Co. Kyokuto Kaihatsu Kogyo introduces its eco-friendly refuse collection truck with its all-new battery-powered trash compactor utilizing the power supply system developed for Mitsubishi?s i-MiEV. Current trash compactors on garbage collection trucks run on power from the truck's engine. During garbage collection and ejection the engine must always be running, with noise and environmental pollution most of us are all too familiar with.
