New Palma Buses Are Less Polluting

There’s good news in Palma. About a week ago, EMT, the municipal bus company in Palma, launched a fleet of 12 new buses, all running on natural gas. The new vehicles are powered with compressed natural gas. We are convincingly told that the new buses are much quieter than the old ones, thus causing less noise pollution for everybody’s benefit. The buses are also said to be 25 % less polluting in low carbon monoxide than the current fleet, and much lower in other smog-forming emissions (80 % in particles and 90 % in nitrogen oxide), making the city more environmentally sustainable in a big way. The new fleet of gas powered buses is seen as a pioneering pilot project that will serve throughout the Illes Balears for future vehicle purchases in municipalities all over the islands.

Anything that brings down noise and smog and pollution is welcome by me and my family. If changing our lightbulbs can help the environment, changing to less polluting buses must really make a difference, wouldn’t you have thought?
