Given the current situation that the country is experiencing with the increase in the price of fuels and the increase in pollution levels, GNV Latinoamérica – Altfuels Communications Group explains that CNG is becoming more relevant for the country, being an efficient, safe and economic fuel, and capable of reducing emissions of CO2, NOx and suspended particles, which allows reducing pollution in cities such as CDMX and improving the health of citizens.
According to data from NGV Global, there are currently more than 23 million natural gas vehicles worldwide and the figure is expected to exceed 30 million by 2024. Currently, Mexico has 9,000 vehicles running on natural gas and the Secretariat of Energy (SENER) estimates that by 2020 there will be three million natural gas vehicles in Mexico.
Distributed in 10 states (Nuevo León, Puebla, San Luis Potosi, Querétaro, Jalisco, Chihuahua, Guanajuato, Michoacán, CDMX and EDOMEX), Mexico has just over 20 CNG stations and about 20 conversion workshops.
Mexico has more than 12 years of experience in the natural gas industry. Refueling infrastructure is under development: in the last two years there has been a growth and expansion of 100%. So turning to see this industry is currently one of the best options to reduce costs and help the environment.
Given the importance of NGV in Mexico, where different governments and entities have expressed an interest in promoting the use of alternative fuels, Altfuels is carrying out AltFuels Mexico 2017, from 4 to 7 April at the World Trade Center of Mexico City, which brings together specialists and companies interested in the market of different clean energies such as NGV, LNG, CNG, biogas/biomethane, bi-fuel and dual-fuel.
Altfuels Mexico 2017 features conferences, exhibition and more activities that seek to raise awareness about the advantages of different alternative fuels for a country in which common fuels have increased their prices considerably.
