AIR AND LOW EMISSIONS
Back to Commercial Uses
Propane is a non-toxic fuel that burns clean and
is safe for indoor use. Thats one reason why more
than 80 percent of Class 4-5 forklifts run on propane.
Unlike gasoline or diesel, there is no evaporation or
spillage loss from the forklift cylinder, so you dont
have to worry about evaporative emissions.
Propane produces less carbon monoxide, hydrocarbons,
particulate matter, and nitrogen oxide emissions than
gasoline or diesel. Emissions from propane lifts are
on a par with compressed natural gas.* Propane is FDA-
and EPA-approved for use in many food-processing plant
*Tests conducted by Southwest Research Institute confirm
there is no significant difference in emissions between
propane and compressed natural gas forklifts.
