Typical dedicated NGV's can reduce exhaust emissions of:
• Benzene emissions by 97% compared to diesel and 99% compared to gasoline
• Nitrogen oxides (NOx) more than 50% compared to diesel and 60%-90% compared to gasoline
• Carbon dioxide (CO2) by 10% compared to diesel and 30%-40% compared to gasoline
• Carbon monoxide (CO) by more than 90% compared to gasoline and diesel
• Non-methane hydrocarbons (NMOG) by 50-75% compared to gasoline
• Lead and sulfur emissions by 100% compared to both diesel and gasoline
• Smoke and particulate matter (PM10) up to 90% compared to diesel
About Natural Gas Vehicles
• There are over 150,000 NGVs on U.S. roads today and over 5 million worldwide.
• There are over 1,500 NGV fueling stations in the U.S. - over half are available for public use.
• Natural gas costs, on average, one-third less than conventional gasoline at the pump.
• Over 50 different manufacturers produce 150 models of light, medium and heavy-duty vehicles and engines.
• Roughly 22 percent of all new transit bus orders are for natural gas.
• Natural gas is sold in GGEs or gasoline gallon equivalents. A GGE has the same energy content (124,800 BTUs) as a gallon of gasoline
