Propane is the king of productivity. Users of propane forklifts already trust the fuel for versatile, clean performance. You may be surprised to learn that propane even has an edge over electric when it comes to productivity and reducing emissions.

Methodology

From August 2016 through January 2017, the Propane Education & Research Council contracted the Gas Technology Institute (GTI) to execute a comparative emissions analysis study of targeted applications in key propane markets, including forklifts. The report studied three emissions types: full-fuel-cycle energy consumption, greenhouse gas emissions, and criteria pollutant emissions (NOx, SOx).

Forklifts

Reliable for indoor and outdoor use, propane forklifts already have a stellar reputation for reliability. Propane and electric dominate the indoor space, but propane offers a significant reduction in overall emissions. Not to mention, propane forklifts are easily maintained and quick to refuel and don’t require recharging downtime, like electric.

  • Sulfur Oxide (SOx)
    • 76% less vs. electric
    • 15% less vs. gasoline
  • Nitrogen Oxide (NOx)
    • 17% less vs. gasoline
  • Greenhouse Gase (GHG)
    • 16% less vs. gasoline
