International study identifies 14 key measures to reduce methane and black carbon emissions; reduction in projected global mean warming of ~0.5 °C by 2050

Green Car Congress

A study by an international team of researchers, led by Drew Shindell of NASA’s Goddard Institute for Space Studies (GISS) in New York City, has identified 14 measures targeting methane and black carbon (BC) emissions that could reduce projected global mean warming ~0.5°C The team considered about 400 emission control measures to reduce these pollutants by using current technology and experience. All emissions control measures are assumed to improve air quality.

Axial Vector and Kirloskar Oil Engines Forming JV for Mass Production of Axial-Type Engines

Green Car Congress

Axial Vector Energy Corporation (AVEC) and Kirloskar Oil Engines (KOEL) have signed a binding memorandum of understanding (MOU) for a joint venture for the mass production of the Axial Vector axial-type, multi-fuel engines ( earlier post ). The AVEC engines can use multiple fuel types, including diesel, JP5 and JP8 military fuels, kerosene, bio-diesels, ethanol, and other blends of these fuels, with a special conversion kit available for the combustion of natural gas or propane.

Surge in natural gas vehicles predicted

Green Cars News

Currently, the top five markets for natural gas vehicles are Pakistan, Argentina, Iran, India and Brazil with Pike Research anticipating that India will be the fastest growing market at a rate of 18.4 This will be largely due to the availability of refuelling stations as well as the expansion of government emission rules in large Indian cities.

Other factors, such as increased vehicle availability, a shortage of oil refining capabilities, tightening emissions restrictions, and increased energy security, are also fueling growth within specific countries. While China and Pakistan are the largest markets, Thailand and India are the fastest growing with compound annual growth rates of 18% and 12%, respectively, between 2013 and 2020. Cumulative natural gas vehicles in use by segment, world markets: 2013-2020.

Emissions. Because of the lower carbon/hydrogen ratio of methane (CH 4 ) relative to gasoline, CO 2 emissions from the combustion of natural gas are approximately 75% of those of gasoline for a given amount of energy production. emissions are reduced by around 25% relative to the use of gasoline for the same engine efficiency. More than 70% of all NGVs and one-half of all fuelling stations can be found in just five countries: Pakistan, Iran, Argentina, Brazil and India.

Forecast: Global Natural Gas Vehicle Fleet to Reach 17 Million by 2015

Light-duty NGVs are not readily available in North America and parts of Asia, and are, in many cases, completely unavailable to private owners, the report notes. Conversely, in Pakistan, Argentina, Brazil, Iran, and India—the top five markets for NGVs—there are a variety of light-duty NGVs available. In most regions, the use of natural gas as a transportation fuel is for the purpose of reducing the usage of imported crude oil or imported refined gasoline. Availability.

These include the availability of refueling infrastructure, tightening tailpipe emissions requirements, and total cost of ownership. Increased gas extraction in North America and other regions has helped increase the supply and reduce the cost of natural gas (NG) while additional pipelines for distribution in Asia Pacific and Europe have improved availability. However, the collapse in global oil prices has eroded a significant portion of the natural gas cost advantage.

Iran and Pakistan are expected to rank second and third, respectively. The potential for new emissions regulations on both light duty and medium- and heavy-duty vehicles and the passage of some form of the NAT GAS Act early in 2011 are expected to contribute to the US growth. According to a new report from Pike Research, worldwide natural gas vehicle (NGV) sales will increase at a healthy pace over the next several years, rising from 1.9

Forecast: 17M Natural Gas Vehicles Worldwide by 2015

Green Car Congress

The top five markets for NGVs are currently Pakistan, Argentina, Brazil, Iran, and India. This rapid expansion will largely be due to the availability of refueling stations and the growth of government emissions rules in large cities in India. In most regions, the use of natural gas as a transportation fuel is for the purpose of reducing the usage of imported crude oil or imported refined gasoline. Availability.
