Landi Renzo announced that it received California Air Resources Board (CARB) Certification for the heavy-duty Ford compressed natural gas/renewable natural gas 7.3-liter engine, which covers Class 4-7 vehicles.

“This accomplishment is a key milestone for clean transportation in the trucking industry,” said Andrea Landi, president of Landi Renzo USA. “It is an ecomobility revolution.”

The Landi Renzo ‘Eco-Ready’ Dedicated CNG/RNG system for the 7.3-liter engine is directed at airport and hotel shuttle buses, delivery trucks, service trucks, large package trucks as well as other vocational offerings. Fleets may be eligible for various clean air grant funding opportunities, renewable natural gas in particular.

CARB awarded renewable natural gas with the lowest carbon intensity score on record. The fuel is made from methane which CARB and the United States Environmental Protection Agency consider 21 more times destructive to the ozone layer than carbon dioxide.

During a multi-year effort, Landi Renzo USA, in partnership with Ford Motor Company, conducted extensive engine and vehicle testing to meet the stringent Ford Q-185 gaseous prep guidelines and demonstrate full useful life durability.

The Landi Renzo USA product is the only Ford QVM EPA and CARB certified CNG/RNG product in the market. For more information and to place orders, visit Landi Renzo USA, email pshaffer@landiusa.com or call Paul Shaffer at (214) 263-6525.
