Near-Zero Emission Natural Gas Truck Technology Proven Ready for the Rigors of Port Drayage Operations

May 28th, 2020–GlobeNewswire.com

The California Natural Gas Vehicle Partnership is pleased to recognize the actions of North America’s largest shipping ports—Los Angeles and Long Beach—to officially upgrade today’s commercially available, near-zero-emission (NZE) heavy-duty natural gas trucks to the highest Technology Readiness Level—TRL 9— in their Feasibility Assessment for Drayage Trucks.The feasibility assessment was first published by the Ports in March 2019 as a means to evaluate the feasibility of various zero-emission (ZE) and NZE drayage truck fuel-technology platforms based on four key parameters: commercial availability, operational feasibility, infrastructure availability, and economic workability. NZE natural gas trucks are the first technology in the Ports’ assessment to achieve the TRL 9 rating. The assessment plays an integral role in the forward strategy of the Port’s groundbreaking Clean Truck Program.
