Reducing Carbon Footprint with Natural Gas

Reducing our carbon footprint, the amount of greenhouse gases including carbon dioxide (CO-2) released into the atmosphere, is a worldwide priority and part of a larger plan to combat global climate change.


Natural gas provides a superior alternative to conventional fuels. Did you know switching to natural gas fuel from gasoline or diesel reduces CO-2 emissions by up to 30%?-


Environmental Benefits

Natural gas is the cleanest burning alternative transportation fuel available today that can economically power light-, medium, and heavy-duty vehicle applications as well as many non-road applications, such as rail and marine vehicles. Whether in the form of compressed natural gas (CNG) or liquefied natural gas (LNG), natural gas is a proven alternative fuel that significantly improves local air quality and reduces greenhouse gases (GHG).


Emissions Reduction

Natural Gas Vehicles improve air quality through dramatic reductions in emissions, such as:
Reducing carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions by 20% to 30%
Reducing carbon monoxide (CO) emissions up to 75%
Reducing nitrogen oxide (NOx) emissions by approximately 50%
Reducing up to 95% of particle matter (PM) emissions
Reducing volatile organic compound (VOCs) emissions by 55%
