New WVU Study Provides Road Map to Lower Methane Emissions for Future Heavy-duty Natural Gas Vehicle Fleet
A new study published today (August 23, 2017) in
the Journal of
Air and Waste Management Association builds upon recent heavy-duty
natural gas vehicle methane emission measurements to model methane emissions
from a future, much larger vehicle fleet. The predicted methane emissions rates
from a 2035 natural gas fleet cover a wide range depending on technologies adopted
and best management practices employed.
