Webinar: Economic Impacts of Deploying RNG in Low NOx Natural Gas Trucks

July 14th, 2-3:30pm (ET) / 11-12:30pm (PT)

Speakers: Johannes Escudero (Coalition for Renewable Natural Gas), Thomas Lawson (California Natural Gas Vehicle Coalition), and Philip Sheehy (ICF)

To RSVP visit: https://econimpactgastrucks.eventbrite.com

California is dealing with a challenge that is three-fold: reduce air quality pollutants, cut greenhouse gas emissions that drive climate change - and reduce petroleum consumption. Heavy-duty diesel truck transportation is a major contributor to the issues that comprise this challenge. Despite progress in addressing this challenge, more aggressive and immediately deployable strategies are required to achieve California’s overlapping clean air and climate change objectives. Replacing or converting heavy-duty diesel engines with low NOx natural gas engines, fueled by Renewable natural gas (RNG) produced in California, is one of these strategies. The potential for the combination of low NOx trucks fueled by RNG presents a compelling economic opportunity, and represents one of the few opportunities to further develop a sustainable and robust alternative, ultra-low carbon transportation fuel industry in California.
