« UC Irvine engineers develop powerful millimeter-wave signal generator; potential for 5G and V2X | Main | Volvo Buses receives order for 90 electric hybrid buses and fast charging stations from Belgium » The UK supermarket group Waitrose has introduced a fleet of CNG (compressed natural gas)-powered trucks with a range of up to 500 miles. They trucks, which use advanced technology developed jointly with Scania and Agility Fuel Solutions, will be fueled with biomethane from CNG Fuels. Ten new Scania-manufactured CNG trucks entered operation for Waitrose in January and will be used to make deliveries to the company’s stores in the Midlands and the North. They are the first in Europe to use twin 26-inch diameter carbon fiber fuel tanks which store gas at 250 bar pressure to increase range from around 300 miles to as much as 500. It will allow them to always run entirely on biomethane, which is 35% to 40% cheaper than diesel and emits 70% less CO . The carbon fiber tanks, which are already in use in the US, were adapted and certified for the European market by Agility Fuel Solutions, thereby offering significant advantages over the standard European set-up of eight steel gas tanks. The vehicles are half a tonne lighter, hold more gas and can cover a greater distance depending on the load being carried. They are quicker to refuel and easier to maintain. Each of Waitrose’s new CNG trucks costs 50% more than one which runs on diesel, but will repay the extra costs in two to three years with fuel savings of £15,000 to £20,000 a year depending on mileage. Its vehicles are likely to operate for at least five more years, generating overall lifetime savings of £75,000 to £100,000 compared with a diesel equivalent. Each truck will save more than 100 tonnes of CO a year (versus diesel).

BP PLC announced on March 01, 2017 that it is acquiring the upstream portion of Clean Energy Fuels' renewable natural gas business. Along with this deal, BP will continue to support Clean Energy's downstream renewable natural gas business and has signed a long-term supply contract for the same. This move will help BP and Clean Energy speed up the supply and growth of renewable natural gas business and at the same time meet the exponential demand for Green Gas as a fuel for vehicles. Register with us now for your free membership and blog access at: Today, AWS is promoting its blog coverage on BP and CLNE. Get all of our free blog coverage and more by clicking on the link below: The acquisition by BP is in-line with its recently announced business strategy wherein the Company is exploring investment opportunities in new business models and technologies which will meet the energy demands of the future. Commenting on the acquisition, Alan Haywood, CEO of BP's Supply and Trading business said: "BP is committed to supporting developments towards a lower carbon future and, working with Clean Energy, we believe we will be well-positioned to participate in the growth of this lower carbon fuel in the US." "BP's investment in and focus on renewable natural gas supply will ensure that Clean Energy can meet the growing demand of our customers for low carbon, renewable fuel." Renewable natural gas fuel is also known as biomethane and is generated from organic waste. Clean Energy's Redeem is the first commercially available, renewable natural gas vehicle fuel and is available in CNG or LNG form. Redeem is derived from biogenic methane, biomethane or biogas, which is methane that is naturally generated by the decomposition of organic waste. The methane gas is processed, purified, and sent into the interstate natural gas pipeline. This processed methane gas then reaches Clean Energy customers through its fuelling stations. Redeem is the cleanest transportation fuel commercially available for heavy duty vehicles in the US today. Redeem was launched in October 2013 and has sold over 60 million gasoline gallon equivalents of Redeem in 2016. Its customers include UPS, Republic Services, Ryder, Kroger, and the City of Santa Monica's transit agency. According to an estimate by the California Air Resource Board, the use of Redeem as a vehicle fuel results in a whopping 70% reduction in greenhouse gas emissions when compared to greenhouse gas emissions from use of conventional vehicle fuels like gasoline or diesel. As per the agreed terms, BP will be paying $155 million for Clean Energy's renewable natural gas business which consists of its existing biomethane production facilities at Canton, Michigan and North Shelby, Tennessee as well as Clean Energy's share of two facilities under construction in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma and Atlanta, Georgia. The agreement also covers Clean Energy's existing third party supply contracts for renewable natural gas. BP plans to continue to subcontract the operations at these facilities to Clean Energy. BP's long-term supply contract will ensure that Clean Energy will have a secure and expanding supply source of renewable natural gas fuel which it sells under the Redeem brand. Currently, Clean Energy has over 350 fuelling stations across the US and Canada. Clean Energy will buy renewable natural gas from BP and at the same time collect royalties on this purchased gas which will be sold at Redeem stations. These royalties are over and above the payments received from BP under the current contract. The transaction will help Clean Energy to expand its customer-base at the same time encourage customers to shift to renewable energy which will help in the reduction of greenhouse gas emissions. The exact closing date of the transaction has not been disclosed; however, the transaction is subject to regulatory approvals and closing conditions.

« NanoSteel closes new equity round led by GM Ventures; NanoSteel AHSS in validation testing with 10+ automakers | Main | Extensive rollout for GM 9-speed transmission in China » Ballard Power Systems announced its membership in the “Fuel Cell Electric Bus Commercialization Consortium” (FCEBCC), a large-scale project for which funding has now been committed to support deployment of 20 zero-emission hydrogen fuel cell electric buses at two California transit agencies. Ten (10) buses are to be deployed with Alameda Contra-Costa Transit District (AC Transit) and 10 buses are to be deployed with the Orange County Transportation Authority (OCTA). The FCEBCC project is funded and sponsored by: the California Air Resources Board (CARB) through the California Climate Investments program; the Bay Area Air Quality Management District (BAAQMD); and the South Coast Air Quality Management District (SCAQMD). The Center for Transportation and Environment (CTE), a non-profit member-based organization, is providing project management and oversight. Ballard will be providing 20 of its FCveloCity-HD 85-kilowatt fuel cell systems to New Flyer of America Inc., a subsidiary of New Flyer Industries Inc., the largest transit bus and motor coach manufacturer and parts distributor in North America. Ballard systems will power New Flyer 40-foot Xcelsior XHE40 fuel cell buses, which are planned to be delivered and in-service with AC Transit and OCTA by the end of 2018. The buses are to be supported by advanced hydrogen fueling infrastructure provided by The Linde Group. The New Flyer Xcelsior buses, powered by Ballard, have a range of approximately 500 kilometers (311 miles), can be refueled in less than 10 minutes without the need for overnight plug-in battery recharging, can replace conventional buses without compromising operational performance, and generate zero tailpipe emissions. Ballard has powered buses for more than a cumulative 10 million kilometers (6.2 million miles) in revenue service—more than any other fuel cell company—and New Flyer has been very active in the North American fuel cell electric bus market. These efforts have contributed to improving the durability and reliability of these buses while demonstrating fuel economy 1.4x higher than diesel buses and 1.9x higher than CNG buses, according to an NREL report. This Fuel Cell Electric Bus Commercialization Consortium is part of California Climate Investments, a statewide program that puts billions of cap-and-trade dollars to work reducing greenhouse gas emissions, strengthening the economy and improving public health and the environment—particularly in disadvantaged communities.

Among all the manufacturers playing around with alternative fuel for trucks, Daimler has been among the most active. Not only is it playing around with pure electric offerings, the German giant has just released a new compressed natural gas (CNG) trash truck for Stuttgart. The new truck for AWS Stuttgart is the first to be powered by the new Mercedes 936 family of engines. Even though the 222 kW (302 hp) inline-six should drive just like a regular diesel, Daimler says it will be much cleaner and greener around town. Not only are CO2 emissions cut by about 23 percent, the gas-powered truck creates almost no particulates or fine dust, helping it meet strict Euro VI emissions standards without any filters or exhaust treatments. Another byproduct of the switch from diesel to gas is a 2 dB cut in noise emissions. Beyond the lower emissions, drivers are unlikely to notice anything a difference between diesel and natural-gas trucks. The 600-l (159-g) tank means range shouldn't be a problem on the daily rubbish collection routes, and the truck's 26 tonne (29 ton) payload is unchanged. Daimler also says the fully air-suspended rubbish trucks should be comfortable and easy to manoeuvre, thanks to their 3.9-meter (12.8-foot) wheelbase. Just like its cars, the new range of Mercedes-Benz trucks comes standard with stability control, lane keeping assist, auto-emergency braking and rain/dusk sensing wipers and headlamps. Adaptive cruise control is also fitted, making those long-haul highway runs easier on the driver. "Despite the higher cost of purchasing a natural gas-powered waste collection vehicle, the saving on fuel bills that can be achieved with a complete switch from diesel to natural gas is going to offset our additional costs after around three and a half years," say Dr Thomas Heß, CEO of the waste-removal company in Stuttgart. Daimler isn't the only company to throw its support behind CNG powered trucks. Skoda is using a fleet of gas trucks at its manufacturing plant, and UK supermarket chain Waitrose has teamed up with Scania to deliver stock using CNG trucks as well. You can even buy a Ford F-150 with a gas powertrain, proving the fuel has legs as an alternative to diesel.

LONDON--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Technavio’s latest market research report on the global CNG compressor aftermarket provides an analysis of the most important trends expected to impact the market outlook from 2017-2021. Technavio defines an emerging trend as a factor that has the potential to significantly impact the market and contribute to its growth or decline. Anju Ajaykumar, a lead analyst from Technavio, specializing in research on engineering tools sector says, “Increasing concern regarding the rising GHG emissions and the need for cleaner energy sources has resulted in growing interest in low-carbon emitting alternate fuels. The growth in the number of refueling stations is expected to propel the demand for CNG compressors aftermarket.” Technavio’s sample reports are free of charge and contain multiple sections of the report including the market size and forecast, drivers, challenges, trends, and more. The top three emerging market trends driving the global CNG compressor aftermarket according to Technavio heavy industry research analysts are: Natural gas has the potential to contribute toward climate change mitigation. Increasing natural gas infrastructure developments will drive this trend. The development of NGV fueling stations is strongly supported by governments in various countries. For instance, in the US, CNG and LNG are considered as alternate fuels. The government provides 30% tax credit for natural gas fueling equipment that has been installed between January 2015 and December 31, 2016. This support will help in reducing the overall investment. Therefore, the natural gas compressor market and CNG compressor aftermarket will grow during the forecast period. Fossil fuel reserves in the world are limited. This has turned the focus on alternative sustainable sources of fuel. Fuels such as upgraded biogas and biofuels help diversify the energy mix and reduce the dependency on petroleum products. Upgraded biogas is produced locally and has the same chemical properties as that of natural gas. It can be transported through the existing gas grid. The use of biogas will decrease the impact of oil and gas price fluctuations in the future. “Therefore, the production of upgraded biogas and efforts put in by governments in Europe, the US, and Asia to improve the natural gas infrastructure will result in continuous demand and installations for natural gas refueling stations. This, in turn, is expected to drive the CNG compressors and thereby create demand for CNG compressor aftermarket,” says Anju. Major contributors to the demand for two-wheelers are countries in APAC, with China leading the market. China is closely followed by India and Indonesia. India has seen the fastest growth in the two-wheeler segment in the past five years. With a consistent increase in the sales of two-wheelers, there is a demand for alternative fuel options in the two-wheelers segment as CNG is highly economical and safe. In June 2016, the Government of India launched Honda Activa CNG scooter. The CNG kit has been approved by the Automotive Research Association of India for fitting in Honda's Activa scooters. It is the first CNG scooter launched in India. These advantages will determine the future trend for CNG in the two-wheeler market. Initiatives such as the one introduced in India can create good market prospects for CNG use in the two-wheeler segment, thus favoring the growth of the CNG compressor market and the CNG compressor aftermarket.
