A Period of Dynamic Change, Part 2

PART II of II Why Natural Gas? Natural gas is a proven technology that is cost-competitive and reduces both criterion air pollutants and GHG emissions. CNG and RNG are well-suited for use in congested areas where human health is compromised due to poor air quality. This is because CNG and RNG reduce criterion air pollutants, […]


New NGV engines are cleaner than alternatives. The Cummins Westport Ultra-Low NOx engine is 90 percent cleaner than the latest available diesel engine. It beats electric motors based on full fuel-cycle comparisons. Natural gas vehicle fuels reduce greenhouse gas emissions. A vehicle operating on liquefied natural gas (LNG) emits 11 percent less CO2 than a […]
