A caravan of 50 low-emissions school buses built by IC Corp., a subsidiary of International Truck & Engine Corp., yesterday began a promotional journey to San Francisco from the company’s plant in Conway, AR. The buses meet the EPA 2007 diesel engine emission standard.
"Watching these 50 Green Diesel Technology school buses leave the plant and travel across America provides our employees with a real sense of accomplishment," said Michael Cancelliere, vice president and general manager, IC Corporation. "It's a testament that customers are confident in our proven emissions technology. We strive to build the best school buses that protect passengers, deliver reliability, and help keep the environment cleaner by reducing emissions."
The school buses are equipped with International DT 466 diesel engines and utilize a diesel particulate filter run on ultra low sulfur diesel (ULSD) fuel. The caravan is expected to be five miles long and will include an International fueling tanker carrying ULSD to refuel the buses.
