The Impact of the Natural Gas Engine on the Economy and Climate
We can see at least four serious consequences [of transition to NGV fuel, – Ed.]. This impact on growth would be around extra 0.4% over the next 10–12 years. It will also have influence on competitiveness, as it leads to significant decrease of expenses; on inflation, as it can drive down producers’ prices in the middle term. <…> This will also reduce emissions: transition to NGV can help decrease emissions of solid particles to 80%
