Pittsburgh Carrier Tries out Natural Gas-Powered Mack Trucks

Over the next year, Pittsburgh-based carrier Pitt Ohio will test out two Mack Anthem trucks equipped with Cummins Westport ISX12N natural gas engines.

Mack Trucks says the initiative is part of Pitt Ohio’s ongoing commitment to reducing the environmental impact of its fleet through the use of alternative fuels…

The two near-zero-emissions trucks were the centerpiece at a recent announcement by the Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection for its Driving PA Forward grant and rebate programs. The programs, launched May 10, are part of Pennsylvania’s efforts to reduce vehicle and equipment emissions and improve air quality by replacing older diesel engines with new technologies. The state aims to cut nitrogen oxide (NOx) emissions by up to 27,700 tons.
