Nissan Forklift Corporation earned California Air Resources Board (CARB) certification for its 2012 model year, large spark-ignited engines, making it the first forklift manufacturer to gain certification for its own line of industrial engines.

The California Air Resources Board (CARB) tested Nissan Forklift engines for compliance with California environmental standards. These engines were rigorously tested and monitored for low-emission level performance within the guidelines set by the Air Resources Board.

“Nissan Forklift is using leading edge technology to develop innovative products that provide a positive impact on the environment,” said Steve Cianci, director of marketing and product management at Nissan Forklift.

The Nissan Forklift Platinum II and GO4 series, with capacities from 3,000 to 11,000 pounds, offer CARB certified LPG or dual-fuel (gasoline/LPG) engines. The CARB certification on these engines provides confidence that the forklifts produce low emissions to help protect the environment. Environmental certifications such as CARB, help employers provide cleaner working environments for their employees.

The California Air Resources Board is a part of the California Environmental Protection Agency, an organization which reports directly to the Governor’s Office in the Executive Branch of California State Government. CARB’s goal is to promote and protect public health, welfare and ecological resources through the effective and efficient reduction of air pollutants while recognizing and considering the effects on the economy of the state.
