LNG is natural gas that’s been liquefied by bringing it down to low temperature. When the gas liquefies, it reduces in volume by approximately 600 times that makes it possible to have enough fuel on board to drive long haul transports.
It is colourless and odourless, it is not toxic and does not corrode. This means LNG offers a huge potential as a substitute for diesel in trucks. Our LNG-powered trucks operating on fossil natural gas, reduce the emissions and pollution substantially.
Advantages over Diesel*
Emits up to :
Less carbon dioxide
Less carbon monoxide
Less sulphur oxide
Less nitrogen oxide
Less particulate mass
*Over 80k km/year
LNG AS A SAFE FUEL
- LNG terminal facility already in place to take care of import needs
- The regulatory requirement in respect of safety and technical requirements in place
- 1,000 LNG retail outlets, entailing an investment of Rs 10,000 cr., in next five-years
