National Clean Fleet Month 2019 Launches to Share Clean Air and Climate Benefits of Natural Gas Vehicles
WASHINGTON – NGVAmerica is teaming up with the American Gas Association and the American Public Gas Association to launch the 2019 Drive Natural Gas Clean Fleet Month from October 14th to November 1st.
“Clean air starts with clean vehicles, and the cleanest heavy-duty engine in the world runs on natural gas,” said Dan Gage, President of NGVAmerica. “We are fortunate to have partners who understand the importance of implementing affordable natural gas solutions in everyday life. And we ask local elected officials and policy makers to join with them to promote and increase natural gas use in transportation that will result in protecting our environment, cleaning our air, and expanding our economy.”
Beginning Monday, October 14th, NGVAmerica and partners will launch a digital campaign of daily messages and collaterals promoting the expanded use of natural gas as a transportation fuel. Materials are available on the campaign’s daily blog at www.ngvamerica.org/cleanfleetmonth2019 and on NGVAmerica’s Twitter, Facebook, and LinkedIn platforms sharing #cleanfleetmonth.
As a low-cost domestic fuel option, natural gas is an American solution, delivering the largest and most cost-effective reductions in transportation-related pollutants than any other powertrain option commercially-available today. And when fueled by renewable natural gas captured from agricultural, food, landfill, or wastewater waste, even greater CO2 and greenhouse gas emission reductions are achieved, helping to clean our cities and improve the environment. With renewable natural gas, the product becomes carbon neutral or even carbon negative.
Natural gas delivers more new vehicles and far greater emission benefits for the investment than any other alternative. No other transportation fuel is as sustainable, adaptive, and competitive across all vehicle classes. Natural gas currently powers passenger vehicles, medium-duty work vehicles, short- and long-haul trucks, school buses, transit buses and shuttles, refuse trucks, construction and mining equipment, marine vessels, and locomotives.
2019 Clean Fleet Month sponsors include: Agility Fuel Solutions, the American Gas Association, the American Public Gas Association, the California Natural Gas Vehicle Coalition, Clean Energy Fuels, CNG Services of Arizona, NGVAmerica, New Jersey Natural Gas, the Texas Natural Gas Vehicle Alliance, U.S. Gain.
NGVAmerica is a national organization of over 200 companies and organizations dedicated to the development of a growing, profitable, and sustainable market for vehicles, ships and carriers powered by natural gas or biomethane. NGVAmerica member companies produce, distribute, and market natural gas and biomethane across North America, manufacture and service natural gas vehicles, engines, and equipment, and operate fleets powered by clean-burning gaseous fuels.
