Bolivia’s reinvigorated compressed natural gas (CNG) vehicle conversion program has converted 592 public transport vehicles from gasoline in five days in the cities of La Paz, Santa Cruz, Cochabamba and Oruro, and looks set to achieve its April target of 3,000 conversions, reports the Ministry for Hydrocarbons and Energy.
Minister Jose Luis Gutiérrez expects that as momentum and capacity builds, up to 700 vehicles per week will be converted across 110 certified workshops. The conversions are being carried out at no cost to the carriers. Up to 80,000 vehicles are expected to be converted under this program.
