Delaware is aiming to decrease its greenhouse gas emissions by 30% by the year 2030, Delaware Public Media reported. To realize its goal, the First State intends to make it easier for people who are getting around the state in an alternative fuel vehicle.
Today marks the 46th year of the “Earth Day” movement. As a child you might have participated in a school play on recycling, made an Earth out of clay in art class, planted a tree, or at some point did all three! As an adult, if the “green initiative” isn’t part of your everyday life, April 22nd may come and go without giving any thought to Earth Day.
This is one article in a series that discuss key findings from a newly completed market and competitive economic analysis of ten potential alternative fuels for commercial vehicles. The analysis covered natural gas in both compressed (CNG including Bio-methane) and liquefied (LNG) forms, liquid propane gas (LPG a.k.a. Autogas), dimethyl ether (DME), Hythane®, hydrogen in both compressed and liquefied forms, (bio)ethanol, biodiesel, and methanol. Each of these fuels becomes competitive at different oil/diesel prices in each of the four global regions; North America, Latin America, Asia-Pacific, and EMEA (Europe, Middle-East, and Africa). This exercise has uncovered valuable insights and profitable opportunities for all the stakeholders in this exciting emerging sector.
Despite the Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) admission in a 1987 report to Congress that “oil and gas wastes contain various hazardous constituents,” oil and gas industry wastes remain exempt from the federal regulation.
