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.
