The EcoFuel World Tour comes to Milan
Landi Renzo and other sponsors meet the team

Monday, May 14 at 10:30, at the Crown Plaza Hotel in San Donato Milanese, the "EcoFuel World Tour" press conference was held along with the presentation of the Volkswagen Caddy EcoFuel and its team. Rainer Zietlow and other three members of the team have made a Guinness World Record for the having gone around the world in a vehicle exclusively powered by CNG.

Landi Renzo S.p.A., along with the other sponsors (Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles, Endress+Hauser Italia, Staubli, Swagelok Nordival, and Tenneco) celebrated the transit of Caddy EcoFuel through Milan, which has traveled over 45,000 km since the beginning of the tour. This venture has involved 75 cities in 40 countries on the 5 continents, in many of which Landi Renzo has subsidiaries (Poland, Holland, China, Pakistan, Iran, Brazil). The stages of the tour through these countries has allowed an ideal "ecological thread" to unite these subsidiaries, and events were held by the subsidiaries in order to promote ecologically sustainable mobility.

Landi Renzo is both a sponsor of the Tour as well as a technical supplier. The company manufactured the valves for the CNG cylinders.

The motivation for Landi Renzo S.p.A.'s sponsoring of the "EcoFuel World tour", as a world-leader in the research and production of high-tech CNG and LPG gas systems for vehicles, has been to diffuse on a world level the culture of care for the environment through the promotion of ecological CNG fuel systems.
