As part of a beneficial interaction, Maranca explained the scope of these future events, including an overview on the significant advances related to sustainable energy sources, such us the production of biogas, biomethane and hydrogen for transport fuelling.
He announced as well a pilot supply station to be fitted out with local technology in the southern region of the country, where the production of hydrogen will be provided and used in a certain proportion as a blend with CNG. Its ecological and economical advantages have already been proven.
Another issue of interest was the description of the locally-manufactured technology for the conversion of diesel engines into CNG system in medium and heavy-duty vehicles. This might contribute to optimise the national energy grid, in connection with the expected changes in the availability of natural gas in its range of options.
Minister Giorgi was eager for the CAGNC initiative on the International NGV & Gaseous Fuels Conference and the V ExpoGNC and stressed the fact that the country should defend its global leadership in the market, resulting in industrial export of equipment and substantial savings for NGV users.
