Last Saturday morning I met with representatives of TruckGas, a world-leader in alternative fuel.
TruckGas replaces conventional diesel engines with Duel Fuel engines, which substitute Liquefied Natural Gas for up to 80% of conventional diesel fuel. LNG is not only a clean and low-carbon replacement. In reducing the quantity of diesel required, and therefore the level of carbon emissions, it also leads to cost savings for the operator.
Between now and the next Assembly elections, Welsh Conservatives will explore in full the possibility of encouraging operators of Cardiff’s buses, taxis and other public vehicles to switch to this method of duel fuel with the intention of rolling out a fleet of environmentally-friendly vehicles in Cardiff and other Welsh cities.
By innovating now, we can help to secure improvements in the natural environment for all.
