WGCPARIS2015 logo NGV GlobalNatural gas as a transportation fuel will be showcased in a dedicated pavilion at the world’s largest natural gas conference, the 26th World Gas Conference, WGCPARIS2015, 1 – 5 June 2015. In a joint announcement, the WGCPARIS2015 Executive Director, Mr Daniel Paccoud and NGV Global Executive Director, Mr Diego Goldin, said that the objective was to profile the rapidly growing natural gas as a transportation fuel sector, within the world’s major natural gas event.

“Within the extensive WGCPARIS2015 Conference program we already address a range of topics relevant to the natural gas vehicle sector, including natural gas vehicle’s environmental  role, LNG as an alternative fuel, additional uses for natural gas, the role of renewable gas (RNG), etc”, said Mr Paccoud. “The new Natural Gas for Transportation pavilion will be on the  floor of the WGCPARIS2015 exhibition and include a seminar stage with a free to attend program providing additional education opportunities specifically targeting on-road, off-road,  marine, and rail applications, while exhibitors servicing this sector will be grouped together in the pavilion”.

As Co-Host of the LNG for Transportation Village at WGCPARIS 2015, NGV Global will work with its membership to develop the free seminars including managing the call for topics and hosting the sessions.

“By creating a special seminar focusing on NGVs, we will be able to present the latest developments, opportunities and challenges for the sector, with our call for topics covering technical, commercial and strategic areas,” said Mr. Goldin from NGV Global. “A diverse range of topics will be addressed including the latest in vehicle applications, stations, safety and  CNG, LNG, and RNG dispensing systems including those used for marine bunkering”.
