New Way Trucks leads the refuse industry in environmentally sustainable options for our customers. New Way is further along in battery-electric vehicle (BEV) refuse applications than any other body manufacturer. We have more BEVs in service today than any of our competitors and these New Way BEVs are working and on route every day.
New Way has chassis integration projects underway with every major chassis manufacturer in North America. Our BYD (Build Your Dreams) units are on route daily, and development is underway with Lion Electric, Mack, and Peterbilt with a focus on developing software enhancements, operator assists, and pack system efficiencies to help maximize battery life and make the collection operation more intuitive for electric vehicle applications. Several more New Way BEV refuse collection vehicles are on order for private haulers and municipalities across the nation.
In addition, 25 to 30 percent of all New Way refuse trucks are built to be fueled with compressed natural gas (CNG). Larger municipalities and private waste haulers of all sizes have made long-term commitments to fuel their entire fleets with either BEV or CNG, and New Way is well-equipped to meet the sustainability goals that municipalities and private haulers alike have implemented.
New Way is a certified installer for all leading providers of CNG fuel systems including Hexagon Agility and Momentum Fuel Technologies. There are numerous options for mounting CNG fuel systems. These include back-of-cab mounts, tailgate mounts, frame rail/side mounts, roof mounts, and custom hybrid designs to accommodate unique customer challenges. New Way engineers carefully analyze each chassis and situation to determine the ideal placement for each CNG fuel system.
Ordering a BEV or CNG refuse truck from New Way assures you’ll be driving the greatest value in BEV and CNG refuse collection. CNG systems are currently available on most New Way models, and we continue to work with leading fuel system providers to optimize design integrations.
New Way Trucks is proud to help drive the industry forward by manufacturing environmentally sustainable refuse equipment for our customers. As a leader and steward of innovation in refuse truck body manufacturing, it is up to us to forge a new way forward that includes an emphasis on sustainability. We have played a major role in affecting positive, sustainable change for our customers and the public they serve on their routes.
