ISO Publishes Standards for CNG and LNG Fuelling Stations

| International | Source: NGV Global

LNG dispenserIn December 2016, ISO published two international standards that will play an important role in the deployment of the alternative fuels infrastructure. The publication of ISO 16923 and ISO 16924 respectively enables entities to apply broadly supported requirements for the design, construction, operation, maintenance and inspection of CNG and LNG fuelling stations. NGV Global has been a key player in the process for these two Standards.

Gasum Plans LNG Fuel Future with CEF Grant

| Finland, Espoo

Gasum rekka lng truckNatural gas retailer Gasum is developing a new kind of LNG refueling station network in Finland, primarily for heavy-duty road transport. Finland’s first LNG/LCNG pilot station will be constructed by the company in Turkul located on the south west coast. The station will supply compressed natural gas (CNG) and biogas (CBG) for cars and liquefied natural gas (LNG) for heavy-duty vehicles. Read more »

NGV Growth and Development Ongoing in Korea

| Korea

There are now more than 35 thousand Natural Gas Vehicles (NGVs) in the Republic of Korea, serviced by 164 CNG or LNG stations, reports the International Energy Agency’s AMFI Newsletter. Promoted by the government’s Ministry of Environment since 2000, the Korean NGV population is made up of about 80% OEM transit buses and 20% OEM trucks and bi-fuel retrofit passenger cars, NGVs are predominantly powered by compressed natural gas (CNG) and have contributed to reduced air pollution in the cities by cutting greenhouse gas emissions.

ITM Power and Hardstaff to Develop HCNG Fuel System for Heavy Goods Vehicles

| United Kingdom

ITM Power, a clean fuel and energy storage company, and transport industry innovator The Hardstaff Group, have signed a Memorandum of Understanding to develop and market a Hydrogen Compressed Natural Gas (HCNG) fuel system for Heavy Goods Vehicles (HGVs). Natural Gas or Bio Methane may be combined at various ratios with hydrogen to produce HCNG, which, when burned, offers significant benefits in the emissions performance and efficiency of engines. These improvements in combustion not only reduce the tailpipe emissions of carbon dioxide, NOx, carbon monoxide and hydrocarbons but also allow for increased engine speed operation, enabling the downsizing of engines. Engine downsizing results in improved operational efficiency and reduced weight. Read more »
