With its innovative systems, LibroDuct makes a significant contribution to the effectiveness of electric buses, while reducing the burden posed to the environment and achieving substantial infrastructure savings in the process.
LibroDuct is one of the many companies that have recently joined ASAM’s ranks. ASAM’s membership includes automotive OEMs, suppliers, tool vendors, engineering service providers, and research institutes spanning the globe. These members ensure that ideas with market relevance are turned into industry standards used throughout the world.
