Mowasalat launched two separate fleets of eco-friendly taxis and buses yesterday. Around one 100 taxis and five buses hit the road as a part of the company’s commitment to assist Qatar impose a major emission cut. “The introduction of the brand new fleet of buses and the recently converted Freestar units is aimed at ensuring a cleaner emission while offering the commuters a high standard of service,” said Jassim Saif Al Sulaiti, Chairman and Managing Director of Mowasalat, at the launch of the Liquefied Petroleum Gas (LPG) powered vehicles. “Vehicles running on Liquefied Petroleum Gas will generate less emissions compared to traditional fuels that contribute to environmental and health problems,” he said stressing that LPG vehicles are greener and cleaner compared to petrol and diesel-powered vehicles. “Liquefied Petroleum Gas generates fewer harmful emissions that will impact on local air quality. It will create less damage to soil and water in case of spills. LPG will quickly evaporate in the event of a fuel spill. Unlike petrol and diesel, LPG is free from ground and water contamination,” Al Sulaiti said. Extensive independent tests have proved that one diesel vehicle emits 120 times the amount of fine particles against the emissions from an LPG vehicle. The NO2 emission from a single diesel vehicle is equivalent to the total emissions from 20 LPG vehicles.
