What are Alternative Fuels?
Alternative Fuels are derived from resources other than petroleum. Most are cleaner burning, produced domestically, and often cheaper than gasoline.
ALTERNATIVE FUELS FOR GREEN STREET CLEANERS
Liquid Propane Gas and Compressed Natural Gas are the most economically viable alternative fuels in the US. Over 90% of CNG and LPG are produced in North America, helping mitigate our dependence on foreign oil.
LPG and CNG are also the most widely available fuels with substantial existing infrastructure. These fuels have a long history of use in Public Transportation, Waste Management, Residential and Commercial Construction, Landscaping, as well as many more.
LPG – a byproduct of natural gas, used at low pressures, clean burning, easy to obtain for your green street sweeper.
CNG – is compressed natural gas, used at high pressures, clean burning, limited infrastructure.
Alternative fuel users may refuel at an onsite station, through a local distributor, or a retail fuel station. Opportunities will vary depending on fleet size, shop layout, type of fuel, and proximity to existing infrastructure.
