“It is crucial that CNG gains momentum in Peru. The fuel is already projected to be the alternative of the future around the world for public and private transport, due to the environmental and economic advantages it offers,” said Rocío Zorrilla, president of AGESP.
In addition, Zorrilla considers the legislative support vital for the promotion and encouragement of actions aimed at NGV expansion. She gave the example of the law enacted by Congress in December that promotes the mass use of natural gas in the country through the development of pipeline transport systems and CNG and LNG transportation, in order to speed the energy grid change into this alternative.
The legislative proposal supported by AGESP also highlights the alarming pollution levels registered in Lima, a strong reason why the capital center should be one of the cities in the region largely using CNG.
