In an interview published by Dinero.com, Pizano highlighted that Colombia is experiencing Metroplús (the public transport system in Medellin), where supplier companies offer guarantees to the carriers, and also distributors like Cummnins commercialize natural gas engines with the same power levels and efficiency as diesel engines.
“The adoption of CNG could be accelerated by municipalities if had economic and environmental awareness. State could also implement import policies for vehicles, engines and parts free of tariffs”, said the businessman.
In turn, Pizano forecast an increase in the demand of CNG for private vehicles because automakers, such as Hyundai, are planning to export OEM NGVs to Colombia. Currently, there are 317,927 vehicles running on natural gas in the country.
