New Paper Finds GHG Benefits Limited when Using Natural Gas

New Paper Finds GHG Benefits Limited when Using Natural Gas

Fueling medium and heavy-duty vehicles with natural gas does not reduce lifecycle greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions, but it can reduce GHG emissions by more than 31% when used to generate electricity for battery electric Class 8 vehicles, according to a paper written by Carnegie Mellon University researchers. The paper also finds that using natural gas in these vehicles could produce other significant environmental benefits, such as reduced air pollutants and lower operating noises. The paper, “Comparison of Life Cycle Greenhouse Gases from Natural Gas Pathways for Medium and Heavy-Duty Vehicles,” is the first in a series of studies sponsored by the Fuels Institute and NATSO Foundation evaluating the use of natural gas as a transportation fuel.
