Within its strategy of protecting the natural environment and reaffirming its fight against climate change, the Spanish company Central Lechera Asturiana has added 5 new trucks powered by liquefied natural gas (LNG) to its routes of transport. This fuel allows to reduce totally the emission of solid particles and reduce CO2 and NOX emissions up to 20% and 60% respectively, helping to maintain a cleaner air.
They are Iveco Stralis vehicles with LNG engines, which will operate on the long-distance closed routes that Central Lechera Asturiana develops between Asturias-Barcelona and Asturias-Madrid for the transport of dairy products.
It is a bet by the company for the incorporation of more ecological fuels in its transport routes that will allow continuing reducing CO2 emissions by more than 160.000 kg CO2/year, thus contributing to the reduction of greenhouse gas emissions of all its processes.
These new trucks stand out for being the first in their segment with powers of 460 hp using exclusively natural gas, which allows making long distances with heavy loads reducing emissions to a minimum.
