NGVA Europe Study Validates Emissions Advantage of Natural Gas Fuel 

NGVA Europe Report - W-t-WGHG Intensity Chart Passenger Vehicles NGVA Europe (the European Natural & bio Gas Vehicle Association) has published a study that shows natural gas reduces GHG emissions from passenger cars on a Well-to-Wheel (WtW) basis by 23% compared with petrol and by 7% compared with diesel. The study, entitled Greenhouse Gas Intensity of Natural Gas, also shows that for heavy-duty applications, benefits compared to diesel are of 16% for CNG and up to 15% for LNG. Also in the maritime sector, overall WtW benefits are up to 21% compared to conventional HFO (Heavy-Fuel-Oil) fuels. Read more »
