The debate at Congress started yesterday and was carried out by the Committee on Transport and Communications. The objective of the bill is to encourage the import of buses with CNG, LPG or dual fueled engines in order to contribute to the protection of the environment and renew the national fleet, according to local newspaper La República.
With the same interest in promoting the widespread use of natural gas in transport, the Peruvian Chamber of Natural Gas Vehicles (CPGNV, as its Spanish acronym) has called for a regulation on NGVsand the implementation of a national corridor for natural gas supply.
In turn, Argentinean Parliament is about to discuss the introduction of CNG buses in the metropolitan area of Buenos Aires. Congressman Fernando Iglesias, together with other representatives, presented recently a bill to oblige companies that provide transport service to choose between three types of engines: CNG or biogas, hybrids that combine diesel with electric and hybrids that combine CNG with electric engines.
