Wal-Mart's Thermal King diesel-hybrid trucks are biodiesel-ready
Thermo King and Wal-Mart have been working together for a few years and the Spectrum "multi-temperature trailer reefer unit and the TriPac Hybrid Auxiliary Idle Reduction and Temperature Management System" is their latest product. The trucks are approved to use biodiesel (percentage unstated), have anti-idling capabilities and the Spectrum SB's TK486V engine meets EPA Tier 4 emission requirements. Wal-Mart is looking at using electric power for their trucks when stopped because California may move to require plugging in at loading docks, the release says.
