Neapolitan Express Brings Natural Gas to Food Delivery Fleets

Neapolitan Express

Neapoli­tan Express, a pizza com­pany based in New York City, is lead­ing a cam­paign to bring nat­ural gas to food deliv­ery vehi­cles in fleets across the coun­try. Every­thing in its fleet vehi­cles is pow­ered by nat­ural gas, instead of propane for food heat­ing and gaso­line or diesel for the truck’s engine and the motor pow­er­ing air con­di­tion­ing and other fea­tures. The food truck pro­duces 70% less car­bon emis­sions and reduces fuel costs by 60% over gaso­line and diesel-fueled versions.

Com­pany owner Max Cre­spo unveiled the Neapoli­tan Express in Feb­ru­ary along­side New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg and Clean Energy Fuels Corp. founder T. Boone Pick­ens. In part­ner­ship with Clean Energy Fuels, Cre­spo is now rolling out the con­cept across the coun­try, accord­ing to Cli­mateWire (sub­scrip­tion required).
