NEW WVU STUDY PROVIDES ROAD MAP TO LOWER METHANE EMISSIONS FOR FUTURE HEAVY-DUTY NATURAL GAS VEHICLE FLEET
A new study published 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.
