> TNO: LNG and CNG step forward towards sustainable transportation

The Dutch research agencies TNO, CE Delft and ECN have developed scenarios for the future mix of energy carriers for the transportation sector. This study has been paid by the Ministry of Infrastructure and Environment of the Netherlands. The different ways on which the climate objectives for -60% CO2 emission in 2050 (with milestones in 2020 and 2030) the transportation sectors can be achieved. Also environmental issues like air pollution have been considered.

Compressed Natural Gas (CNG; pressurized natural gas) and Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG) are the best options in order to make vehicle transportation more sustainable. Also biofuels are a good option to reduce emissions.

The research agencies are most positive about LNG and CNG. “The use of methane as fuel offers limited advantages regarding reduction of greenhouse gases, but is a step towards the use of biomethane as fuel”, according to the researchers. Biomethane can be uses as Liquefied Bio Gas (LBG), also called Liquefied Bio Methane (LBM) or Bio-LNG or as Compressed Bio Gas (CBG). The use of more sustainable gases can also be a step towards the use of hydrogen as energy carrier. For the report (English language) please refer to
