Title: Environmental Assessment of Natural Gas in Transportation
Date: April 3, 2015, 9:30 a.m. (PST)
Presenter: Rosa Dominguez-Faus
This webinar focused on research discussed in a new white paper, “The Carbon Intensity of NGV Long-Haul Trucks.” Discussion compared the carbon intensity of natural gas and diesel long haul trucks as calculated with the latest version of GREET1. It also explored the contribution of different assumptions- such as methane leakage, engine efficiency and natural gas storage- to the well-to-wheels carbon intensity of natural gas trucks. Additionally, the webinar examined how to calculate the break-even methane leakage for natural gas trucks and the extent to which renewable natural gas can improve the climate performance of NGV trucks.
