SANTA BARBARA, Calif. — Mission Linen Supply recently increased the number of alternative fuel vehicles it uses, the company reports. Twenty-six compressed natural gas (CNG) vehicles and six propane vehicles have been added to the company’s fleet and are among its eco-conscious vehicles in use in California, Texas and Arizona.
The addition of the new vehicles has resulted in fuel cost savings and reduced emissions of nitrogen oxide, carbon monoxide and greenhouse gases, the company says.
The CNG vehicles are capable of reducing nitrogen oxide emissions by as much as 98% by burning cleaner fuel, and greenhouse gas emissions are reduced by about 30% or greater, according to the company.
The propane vehicles, too, burn cleaner fuel, resulting in reduced harmful emissions. The vehicles meet Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and California Air Resources Board certification requirements.
“In just a short period of time, we have seen positive effects on the environment, natural resources, and on route optimization,” says John Ross, Mission Linen president and CEO.
