Today two articles came out discussing the near-zero emission trucks technology deployed at the Port Complex (Ports of Los Angeles and Long Beach). These trucks are using ultra-clean renewable fuel and provide an immediate solution to achieving clean air where it's needed most. Part of the Clean Air Action Plan formed in 2006, TTSI has been on the leading edge of green truck technology from the beginning.
The renewable natural gas the trucks are using is “an ultra-clean and ultra-low-carbon natural gas alternative made from the methane that is captured when waste from food scraps, animal manure, sewage and other organic sources is broken down, captured and refined. RNG has the lowest carbon intensity rating of key transportation fuels when comparing the well-to-wheels greenhouse gas (GHGs) emissions of various fuels in heavy-duty trucking applications,” per ACT News.
"TTSI has now been testing the new CWI natural gas engines since last year and have found that they work terrifically. We have run the trucks hard — in and out of the ports for long hours in all kinds of conditions — and have had no issues. TTSI is committed to going above and beyond what we can towards a more sustainable future and transitioning to renewable natural gas has made it easy." Says TTSI president Vic La Rosa.
