For over-the-road Class 8 heavy-duty applications, compressed natural gas (CNG) serves as a near-equivalent replacement for diesel-powered engines but with a tremendously environmentally-beneficial upside. With CNG, nitrogen oxide (NOx) emissions can be reduced by as much as 95 percent with carbon dioxide (CO2) reduction as high as 30 percent. In addition, advancements in technology have led to CNG-powered trucks having comparable power, performance, and range as a comparable diesel-powered truck but without the price volatility that diesel has experienced over the last several years. Look to Luxfer's line of G-Stor Go Type 4 composite cylinders to help address the high-capacity CNG storage needs of your alternative fuel system.
Hydrogen is an emerging technology that is receiving substantial investment into nationwide fueling infrastructure. Fuel cell-powered Class 8 trucks for drayage, short-haul, and even long-haul shipping represent new options for a zero-emission future. With hydrogen, filling times are fast and ranges can approach 300 miles. In addition, a Class 8 truck powered with a fuel cell system has a substantially reduced curb weight allowing for higher payloads. Luxfer offers the G-Stor H2 composite cylinder to directly address your hydrogen storage needs.
