|Rainbow's Residential Automated Collection Vehicles
Are Powered By Clean Natural Gas
Our fleet of automated collection vehicles are powered by compressed natural gas (CNG), a clean burning fuel produced domestically.
Environmental and Health Benefits:
CNG produces significantly fewer smog-producing emissions than reformulated gasoline or diesel fuel when used in natural gas vehicles. Heavy-duty natural gas trucks have demonstrated more than 90 percent reduction in carbon monoxide - the principle "greenhouse gas" - and more than 50 percent in nitrogen oxides compared with commercial diesel engines.
Natural gas vehicles have been certified to meet California's low-emission vehicle standards.
Using domestic natural gas instead of oil or other fuels imported from overseas improves energy security.
CNG fueling stations are safe. Industry standards have been adopted by various federal agencies, and are continually upgraded to make natural gas the safest vehicular fuel.
