Heavy Duty Performance with a Smaller Carbon
across upstate New York and nationwide are
recognizing propane as an environmentally friendly
way to achieve greater efficiency, better
performance, and increased cost savings. In
factories and warehouses, more than 600,000 propane
forklifts provide less downtime, faster ground
speeds, and less greenhouse gas emissions.
Propane-fueled commercial mowers are helping
businesses cut fuel costs while reducing toxic
emissions. And federal tax credits for clean-burning
alternative fuels make propane as good for the
bottom line as it is for the environment.
Propane-fueled forklifts raise the bar on efficiency
and air quality.
Propane-powered forklifts cut greenhouse gas
emissions 19 percent compared with gasoline and
7 percent compared with diesel.1
