Game Changer Technical White Paper
Next Generation Heavy-Duty Natural Gas Engines Fueled by Renewable Natural Gas
This White Paper explores the need—and leading approaches—to immediately start deploying zero‑emission and near‑zero‑emission heavy‑duty vehicle (HDV) technologies on a wide‑scale basis in the United States. Expeditious action is needed to reduce smog‑forming emissions from HDVs to restore healthful air quality—as is legally required under the federal Clean Air Act—for approximately 166 million Americans who reside in areas with exceedingly poor air quality. At the same time, to combat global climate change, the United States must aggressively reduce greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions from HDVs, which are the fastest growing segment of US transportation for energy use and emissions.
Learn about the most important development for heavy-duty vehicles in decades.
