LNG and CNG strategy in heavy-duty transport (German report)

Report (10/2019) by WG 5

Compared to Diesel, LNG (Liquefied Natural Gas) and CNG (Compressed Natural Gas) have the potential to reduce CO2 by about 22 percent. With natural gas, sulphur and nitrogen oxide emissions can be reduced to almost zero, particulate matter by about 95 percent and noise by about 50 percent. LNG and CNG are currently the only immediately available and competitive alternatives to Diesel in heavy goods vehicles. An increase in vehicle demand is key for an expansion of the filling station infrastructure because a speedy market penetration supports its economical operation.
