“CNG is a clean fuel, and soon to be produced in Lebanon. Along with ECR-R110, the Lebanese will further benefit from this combination. We should not miss the opportunity to take advantage of this, and invest accordingly. This could generate one of the most environmentally and socially responsible public transport systems in the region,” said Jacob Salem, sales manager at Terramar Middle East, the agent for MAN Truck & Bus in Lebanon since 2004.
Compared to the Euro 4, which is highest emission standard used in the GCC countries for buses, natural gas is reducing emissions of on average by more than 85% nitrogen oxides (NOx), carbon dioxide and particulates and contributes such to a cleaner and less polluted air.
