Ultra-Low NOx & Renewable Natural Gas Combination Makes for
‘Most Important Development for Sustainable Transit in Decades’
Southern California Gas is hosting a free webinar detailing how the combination of ultra-low NOx natural gas engines and renewable natural gas can help meet state emission targets and in fact together constitute “the most important development for sustainable transit operations in decades.”
The one-hour Next Generation Natural Gas for Transit Operations webinar takes place on September 21 at 11am Pacific/2pm Eastern time.
The scheduled speakers are
- LA Metro vehicle technology director John Drayton, who will provide insight on his agency’s clean fleet commitments, including the cost and emissions calculations that pushed them to evaluate RNG and NZE operations;
- California Transit Association staff lead Michael Pimentel, for an update on developments with the California Air Resources Board’s Advanced Clean Transit rule, which will require transit agencies to implement renewable fuels, the cleanest available engines, and zero-emission buses;
- GNA/Gladstein, Neandross & Associates senior VP Jon Leonard, who will detail how the combination of renewable natural gas and ultra-low NOx natural gas engines offer the lowest overall emission profile among all commercially available advanced transit technologies; and
- SoCalGas market development executive Mike Bolin, with an overview of the support SoCalGas offers fleet operators to help reduce their fuel costs and emissions.
The webinar will include real-world case studies from transit fleets that have implemented renewable natural gas and near-zero-emission engine projects (“RNG+NZE”) to achieve immediate reductions of more than 60% for greenhouse gases and 90% for NOx.
The September 21 webinar is being organized by Fleets & Fuels publisher GNA, which released the 192-page white paper Game Changer on the RNG+NZE pair-up at ACT Expo 2016 in Long Beach, Calif. this past May (F&F, May 10).
