Company Uses Environmentally-Friendly Trucks to Drive the Point Home Santa Barbara, CA
After a successful pilot program in Santa Barbara, Mission Linen Supply will soon begin using six CNG (compressed natural gas) trucks in Morro Bay, California and Phoenix, Arizona to deliver linens, uniforms and restroom supplies to customers. CNG was one of several alternative fuels Mission Linen Supply considered as it was seeking to increase its commitment to sustainability. During the pilot the company was impressed by CNG’s reduced impact on the environment as compared to the threat caused by disposal of batteries used in hybrid applications.
The company worked with BAF Technologies, the leader in natural gas technology and conversion, to equip trucks with the CNG system.
Compressed Natural Gas powered engines are capable of reducing NOx (nitrogen oxide) emissions by as much as 98%, thereby reducing smog. They are also capable of reducing carcinogenic particulate matter by 99%. The overall reduction in greenhouse gas emissions will be 30% or greater.
“Since we depend on trucks to conduct our business, we are committed to finding ways to increase fuel efficiency while reducing our carbon footprint,” said Don Bock, Director Risk Management for Mission Linen Supply. “We’re thrilled that we can have a positive impact on the environment and save money, making the case for other companies in our industry to follow suit.”
