Wal-Mart now using LNG trucks

Wal-Mart is going to introduce four liquefied natural gas (LNG)-fueled Peterbilt 386 trucks into service at their distribution center in Apple Valley, California using Westport Innovations HPDI system on Cummins ISX engines (pictured above is one of Wal-Mart's hybrid trucks being used for other tests). The deployment will be supported, in part, by funding from the Mojave Desert Air Quality Management District's (MDAQMD) Mobile Source Emission Reductions Competitive Bidding Program.

This project belongs to Wal-Mart's "Sustainability 360" program, which is expected to reduce the company's fleet vehicles' greenhouse gas emissions by 20 percent and NOx emissions between 30 and 50 percent, according to Michael Gallagher, president and chief operating officer of Westport.
