India’s 1st LNG Fuelled Green Truck:
A start-up backed by Blue Energy Motors, has made India’s 1st LNG–fuelled green truck at Chakan in Pune.
- Heavy-duty liquefied natural gas (LNG) vehicles work much like gasoline-powered vehicles with a spark-ignited internal combustion engine.
- The natural gas is super-cooled and cryogenically (at – 260 degrees F) stored in liquid form, usually in a tank on the side of the truck.
- In the liquid state, the volume of natural gas is 600 times smaller than its gaseous state.
