Natural gas has become an undisputed alternative to drive today’s mobility.
The fuel has become a natural part of low-emission and economic transportation choices across the globe, for personal and public transport, heavy-duty trucks, as well as marine and rail transport. Natural gas vehicles (NGVs) and the necessary infrastructure have seen tremendous growth, with nearly 20 million NGVs on global roads today.
Natural Gas reduces greenhouse emissions by 30%.
Natural gas used in transportation can reduce greenhouse gas emissions by 20% - 30% when compared to petrol and diesel. Vehicles running on natural gas emit 25% less carbon dioxide than those powered by petrol and 20% less carbon dioxide than those powered by diesel. Meanwhile natural gas-powered vehicles produce up to 95% less nitrogen oxide than vehicles running on petroleum or diesel fuels. Furthermore natural gas is less flammable than other transportation fuels, making it an all-around safer choice.
Increasing the use of natural gas as a motor fuel also provides significant economic benefits. On average, the cost of natural gas is about 30% lower than diesel and about 50% lower than petroleum. Natural-gas powered vehicles also have far lower operating and maintenance costs, which in turn generate significant savings over the life cycle of a vehicle.
