With growing numbers of hauliers looking to switch to liquid natural gas (LNG) trucks, researchers say they are as bad for the environment as diesel trucks are. Leading clean transport campaign group Transport & Environment (T&E) says that LNG lorries are a ‘dead-end’ for cutting climate emissions and emit more cancer-causing particles than manufacturers claim. The group commissioned independent on-road tests and say that only zero-emissions trucks, such as battery-electric vehicles, should be supported by lawmakers. It called for gas fuelling stations to be kicked out of EU fuel infrastructure targets and generous government subsidies for LNG trucks in all EU countries should be ended.

As we know, this problem does not affect only sectors such as the agriculture one or the environment one, but also the logistic sector. That is why transport companies always look for new and better ways to reduce the proportion of the emissions and improve air quality.
