UK study finds Bio-SNG could offer 90% reduction in lifecycle CO2; lower cost of carbon abatement than electrical solutions for transport applications

Green Car Congress

Cost of carbon abated for transport applications. Bio-SNG (Synthetic Natural Gas) delivered via the gas grid offers CO 2 lifecycle savings of up to 90% compared with fossil fuel alternatives, and offer sa more cost-effective solution than electricity for carbon abatement in transport applications, according to a new feasibility study published by National Grid (UK), the North East Process Industry Cluster ( NEPIC ) and Centrica. Cost of carbon abated.
