Benefits of a 100% natural gas engine

Whether in compressed or liquid form, natural gas can fuel a wide range of vehicles, from forklifts to heavy-duty trucks, with a spark-ignition engine that is just as powerful as a gasoline or diesel engine. Without question, the energy efficiency of this technology is also environmentally friendly. Cleaner than gasoline or diesel engines, a 100% natural gas engine reduces greenhouse emissions by as much as 25%. When the engine is powered by renewable natural gas (biomethane), this figure exceeds 90%.
