LCA Study of Vehicles Running on NGV and bioNGV

IFPEN has just conducted a study on behalf of the AFG (French Gas Association) and the AFGNV (French NGV Association) in order to compare the impact on global warming of vehicles running on NGV (natural gas for vehicles) and bioNGV to that of diesel, gasoline and electric vehicles using the LCA methodology.
