Near-zero emission natural gas engines making advances

“A study by the University of California, Riverside’s College of Engineering Center for Environmental Research and Technology (CE-CERT) and Southern California Gas Co. (SoCalGas) demonstrated that the 11.9-liter engine achieved California’s lowest smog-forming emissions standard and maintained low emissions in all types of driving. The engine is the only heavy-duty engine in the category to…

Study: Heavy-Duty Natural Gas Engine Aces California Emissions Tests

The study results underscore the importance of the near-zero truck engines for cleaning the air. Most heavy-duty vehicles on roads today are diesel-powered and represent one of the largest sources of nitrogen oxide (NOx), or smog-forming, emissions and fuel consumption in North America. By contrast, the new near-zero emissions 12-liter engine, made by Cummins Westport,…

Analysis of the Role of Gas for a Low-Carbon California Future

This report advises policymakers to consider renewable natural gas for California’s low carbon building strategy as a pathway for California to achieve its greenhouse gas (GHG) reduction goals. The analysis forecasts that replacing just 16 percent of the traditional natural gas supply with renewable gas (RNG) captured from sources like dairies, wastewater treatment plants, and…
