Fuels that EPAct defines as alternative fuels are: • Methanol, ethanol, and other alcohols • Blends of 85% or more of alcohol with gasoline • Natural gas and liquid fuels domestically produced from natural gas • Liquefied petroleum gas (propane) • Coal-derived liquid fuels • Hydrogen • Electricity • Fuels (other than alcohol) derived from biological materials (including pure biodiesel (B))1.

Hence, the LNG for road freight transport is a potential alternative to replace the traditional fuels in the short to medium term. Life-cycle GHG emissions' comparison in LNG and diesel HDVs. Alternative Fuels Overview By using alternative fuels, fleets can significantly lower greenhouse gas emissions, reduce dependence on petroleum, lower maintenance costs, and in some cases, save money on fuel. When considering the addition of alternative fuels or advanced vehicle technologies, attention should be given to the.

Mobility & Transport Maersk is developing a blend of lignin and ethanol as an alternative, eco-friendly fuel, aiming to cut emissions in half by Spotted: Danish shipping giant Maersk is testing a sustainable, alternative fuel as part of its pledge to cut emissions. “Customers are beginning to establish propane in their fleets as a fuel of choice rather than as an alternative fuel,” said Michael Taylor, director of autogas business development for the Propane. The Alternative Fuels Data Center (AFDC) provides information, data, and tools to help fleets and other transportation decision makers find ways to reach their energy and economic goals through the use of alternative and renewable fuels, advanced vehicles, and other fuel-saving measures. This includes planning for acquisitions of alternative-fueled vehicles, as well as installation of supply equipment to supply the energy these new vehicles require. Contact FEMP’s team of federal fleet experts and engineers for assistance and technical expertise relating to statutory requirements, alternative fuels, and fleet data analysis.

  The City began its alternative-fuel program in with 20 heavy-duty CNG transit buses. Now, 85% of the City’s heavy- and medium-­duty trucks and 20% of its light-duty vehicles run on CNG.

You can use GSA Fleet to acquire alternative fuel vehicles (AFVs) that help to meet the federal sustainability requirements.. You can find available AFV configurations in the AFV product guide below. Airports own and contract fleets to transport passengers, staff, and goods by on- and off-road vehicles. Although most transportation fuels are consumed by aircraft, using alternative fuels in airport fleets is one opportunity airports have to control emissions and fuel costs and potentially reduce maintenance.
