LNG trucks as bad as diesel for the climate, researchers say

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.

Truck makers worried about CO2 emissions limits

In February, the EU reached a tentative deal on CO2 emission limits for heavy-duty commercial vehicles. The rules require that between 2025 and 2029, new trucks must emit an average of 15% less CO2 compared to this year’s emission levels.
