A cleaner burning, lower carbon fuel with almost zero particulate emissions, CNG is a natural fit for greener supply chains and escalating environmental targets. And lower carbon means lower cap-and-trade costs too. With new heavy vehicle standards in Canada and the US regulating GHG emissions, natural gas trucks and buses can position your fleet for long-term sustainability and success.

Greenhouse gas (GHG) reductions of up to 25 per cent vs. diesel
Lower NOx and VOCs, nearly zero particulates
Less risk of spills, virtually no contamination (disperses in air)
Quiet operation – up to 90 per cent quieter at idle than diesel
More suitable for public transit, municipal use
More comfortable, preferred by drivers
CNG vehicles have no emission equipment to service and maintain. So fleet operators don’t have to pay for Diesel Exhaust Fluid (DEF) or Diesel Particulate Filters (DPF). There is just a catalytic converter on a CNG engine.
CNG engines require simple valve adjustments and spark plug replacement—maintenance items that are much less expensive than those associated with servicing diesel emission controls. With stricter and costlier emission controls just around the bend, fleet operators can expect the CNG-diesel maintenance gap to widen even more.
