New Autogas vehicles now serving Los Angeles International Airport

dnata, a global air services provider of inflight catering operations, has put into operation a new fleet of Autogas vehicles at Los Angeles International Airport. The company has purchased eight Ford F-750 delivery trucks fuelled by emissions-reducing LPG.

“Our top priority is to operate a clean and safe fleet. With these Autogas vehicles, we reduce emissions without sacrificing safety or performance,” said Peter DeVito, CEO of dnata catering USA.

dnata’s Autogas trucks are 90% cleaner than the Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) emissions standard. They are built with ROUSH CleanTech’s 6.8L V10 3V LPG engine, which is certified to the optional near-zero NOx level of 0.02 g/bhp-hr. NOx is the biggest challenge to air quality in the United States and according to the EPA, exposure to NOx exhaust can trigger health problems, such as asthma, bronchitis and other respiratory issues.

With dnata’s recent green purchase, ROUSH CleanTech has built and deployed 20,000 Ford vehicles and Blue Bird school buses fuelled by LPG to fleets across North America since 2010. “We look forward to continuing our partnership with dnata as the company expands in the U.S. and moves to a greener fleet,” said Todd Mouw, president of ROUSH CleanTech.

dnata’s first two vehicles were delivered in December, with another six arriving by year end. dnata will fuel the vehicles through mobile on-site fuelling with its local LPG provider, as well as at public service stations. For more information, please visit this link.
