Cleaner Goods Movement for Tomorrow: Natural Gas to Power Ships, Trains and Trucks

On December 11, 2012, Southern California Gas Company partnered with the South Coast Air Quality Management District to host a free webinar titled “Cleaner Goods Movement for Tomorrow: Natural Gas to Power Ships, Trains and Trucks.” This webinar highlighted the burgeoning opportunity for natural gas as a cleaner alternative fuel to power ships, trains and heavy-duty trucks associated with goods movement activities.
Goods movement is integral to Southern California’s economy and this sector is expected to continue to grow. It is critical that cleaner fuels and technologies be used by the ships, trains and trucks in the future to reduce the emissions generated by this sector. The ships, trains and trucks that move these goods typically rely on large, high horsepower engines that burn diesel or similar fuels but they can be powered by cleaner natural gas.
