NGV Global 2017 Workshop: LNG as a transportation fuel – Matching Fuels and Engines
Wednesday 22 March 2017
The IEA’s 2016 World Energy Outlook has declared there are decades of natural gas use still before us, a view welcomed by the International Gas Union. Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG), in fossil-based and renewable forms, is rapidly building market presence: a transportation fuel for today and tomorrow.
The issues associated with LNG fuel quality, a recent focus of industry-related media and critics of natural gas, are being addressed by an international panel of experts as one of the major topics for discussion at NGV Global 2017, the international association’s biennial conference to be held in Rotterdam from March 20 to 23.
