NS Lauded for Locomotive Efficiency

The American Chemistry Council and online news service Environment Finance have recognized Norfolk Southern for improving locomotive efficiency.

The railroad was given the 2022 Responsible Care Energy Efficiency Award for its initiatives to improve energy usage.

A news release said NS reported that its locomotive fuel efficiency program includes “using more alternative fuels, retiring less energy-efficient locomotives and applying locomotive energy management systems.”

This has resulted in a 7 percent reduction in fuel use, which saved 47 million gallons of fuel and avoided more than 470,000 metric tons of greenhouse gas emissions in the past two years.
