Emissions Reductions with CNG
BioCNG is a cost effective and green fuel
CNG produced from biogas has the lowest greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions of any vehicle fuel; its carbon footprint is lower than CNG produced from natural gas, lower than liquid natural gas (LNG) produced from natural gas, and even lower than LNG produced from biogas. It is also lower than ethanol and biodiesel.
In fact, the California Air Resources Board (CARB) recently stated that RNG results in negative carbon intensity. BioCNG™ is well positioned to take advantage of being labeled as a cost effective and “green” fuel.
Lower your emissions with BioCNG fuel
Exhaust emissions from natural gas vehicles (NGVs) like those powered by BioCNG are much lower than those from gasoline and diesel vehicles. Look no further than the natural gas-powered Honda Civic Natural Gas, which the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) called the cleanest commercially available, internal-combustion vehicle.
The Civic Natural Gas also meets the California Air Resources Board’s stringent AT-PZEV standard, the strictest in the country. In gasoline vehicles, evaporative and fueling emissions account for a significant portion of the emissions associated with operation. NGVs, on the other hand, produce little or no evaporative emissions during fueling and use.
Replacing a typical older in-use vehicle with a new NGV offers these impressive these emission reductions:
|Carbon monoxide (CO)||70-90 percent reduction|
|Non-methane organic gas (NMOG)||50-70 percent reduction|
|Nitrogen oxides (NOx)||75-95 percent reduction|
|Carbon dioxide (CO2)||20-30 percent|
