The aim of the present study is to compare the life cycle, in terms of greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions, of diesel, compressed natural gas (CNG) and liquefied natural gas (LNG) used as fuels for heavy-duty vehicles in the European market (EU-15). We concentrated on the European scenario and on heavy-duty road transport vehicles, given their important incidence on the global emissions of GHG. It is shown that the substitution of diesel with natural gas for this type of vehicles leads to a reduction of GHG emissions of 14% and of 10% respectively for CNG and LNG.

Abstract

The aim of the present study is to compare the life cycle, in terms of greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions, of diesel, compressed natural gas (CNG) and liquefied natural gas (LNG) used as fuels for heavy-duty vehicles in the European market (EU-15). We concentrated on the European scenario and on heavy-duty road transport vehicles, given their important incidence on the global emissions of GHG. It is shown that the substitution of diesel with natural gas for this type of vehicles leads to a reduction of GHG emissions of 14% and of 10% respectively for CNG and LNG.
