Dual-fuel technology cuts costs and emissions

Trucks can run on low emission natural gas and reduce fuel costs at the same time, according to Clean Air Power. The Lancashire based company has developed dual-fuel technology, which enables heavy goods vehicles (HGVs) to run on a combination of natural gas, in particular bio methane, and bio gas. The company states that carbon dioxide emissions on a typical HGV can be reduced by 26 tonnes per year, making annual fuel cost savings of £17,000 per year.
Bio methane is generated from vegetable and animal waste matter. Clean Air Power’s own 1,600 dual-fuel vehicles are estimated to have saved around 50,000 tonnes of carbon dioxide emissions.
