Whitepaper: Game Changer: Next Generation Heavy-Duty Natural Gas Engines Fueled by Renewable Natural Gas Published May 2016
This groundbreaking technical report was published following the September 2015 certification of the world’s first heavy-duty engine that emits oxides of nitrogen (NOx) at levels so low they are considered “near-zero.” This certification by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and the California Air Resources Board confirmed that a natural gas engine is now the cleanest commercially available option for heavy-duty vehicles. When fueled with ultra-low-carbon renewable natural gas, the widespread adoption of this engine technology can immediately and economically help transform America's heavy-duty transportation system, reduce petroleum dependence, improve ambient air quality, and address climate change.
Find out how a natural gas vehicle may be able to help you save money and support the environment.

In the fall of 2016, LA Metro deployed hundreds of the first commercially available near-zero-emission natural gas engines from Cummins Westport. After several months of daily operations, hear how these ultra-clean engines are performing (power, range, emissions, reliability). Additionally, hear how LA Metro is procuring a steady supply of renewable natural gas to fuel its CNG bus fleet and further reduce its greenhouse gas emissions.
Webinar Speakers & Presentation Topics:
Understand how a heavy-duty vehicle with Cummins Westport’s near-zero-emission natural gas engine (the world’s first heavy-duty engine certified to meet CARB’s lowest-tier optional low-NOx emission standard of 0.02 g/bhp-hr NOx), has NOx emissions that are equivalent to a heavy-duty battery-electric vehicle, even in states with the cleanest electrical grids in the nation—California, Oregon, and Washington.

Gain insight on how renewable natural gas, which can offer some of the lowest carbon intensity ratings of key transportation fuels, enables fleet operators to reduce greenhouse gas emissions by 40% to 400%. Additionally, hear an update on the projected RNG supply opportunities in California, and how this ultra-low carbon fuel could viably offset the diesel consumed by heavy-duty vehicles throughout the state.
