Performance with a Smaller Carbon Footprint
Business owners 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
Propane is nontoxic, and clean burning, with
virtually no loss from spillage or evaporation
into the atmosphere.
Propane forklifts maintain consistent, 100
percent power throughout operation, with faster
ground speeds than electric forklifts.
Propane forklifts require little refueling time
compared with forklifts that run on natural gas
Propane engines can last up to twice as long as
federal tax credit of 50 cents per gallon is
available for fleets.
Propane-powered mowers cut more than just the grass.
Propane is nontoxic and insoluble in water,
eliminating any risk of groundwater or soil
Commercial propane mowers are quieter than
Commercial propane mowers reduce smog-producing
emissions by more than 77 percent over gasoline.
Commercial propane mowers reduce greenhouse gas
emissions by 48% over gasoline.2
