Did you know, over 600,000 forklift and other indoor industrial vehicles are keeping indoor air quality clean in the United States? To help support this trend, GLACC member Suburban Propane has taken the lead in supporting this clean option for warehouses, factories, and other facilities by introducing the Carbon Monoxide (CO) Emissions Controller for Propane Forklifts. This is key for complying with OSHA standards for indoor air quality.
If your facility isn’t using propane indoors, here are a few reasons why you might want to change that. Propane:
- Produces 19% fewer emissions than gasoline forklifts and 7% fewer emissions than diesel forklifts
- Meets Environmental Protection Agency standards (forklift engines with off-the-shelf electronic engine controls and three-way catalysts)
- Maintains consistent, 100% power throughout operation with faster ground speeds than electric forklifts
- Refuels quickly — it takes less time to fill a propane tank than to switch or charge a battery
