Cutting-Edge Zoo Cuts Costs with Propane
Operating propane autogas vehicles for over 25 years, the Columbus Zoo introduced its newest fleet vehicle — a propane refuse truck. According to Tracy Murnane, director of purchasing, they are less expensive to maintain and have lower fuel costs. And he finds the infrastructure to be extremely inexpensive and convenient, using the same propane tanks needed around the zoo. Because the propane engines are clean-burning and reduce emissions, they help reduce the zoo’s carbon footprint while maintaining efficiency.
