Thanks to Dual-Fuel™, carbon emissions from HGVs and CVs are cut by as much as 20 percent, while operators could save tens of thousands of pounds a year for each vehicle. In the UK, for example, the cost differential between diesel and gas is around 35 percent. Trials have established a cost saving of around £12,000 ($18,000) on fuel costs alone.
But Clean Air Power is not just trialing technology. Dual-Fuel™ technology has already been fitted to more than 2,500 vehicles around the world in real-world, commercial applications. And some of these vehicles have now been operating for more than six years. Click here to read some of our case studies.
The technology works by allowing heavy duty diesel engines to run primarily on natural gas, with diesel acting like a liquid spark plug. Minimal changes are required to the standard diesel power plant itself. High efficiency comes as standard with Dual-Fuel™, with trucks running on up to 90 percent natural gas.
