Mobile sources (vehicles and equipment) produce about 40 percent of greenhouse gas emissions in California and about 70 percent of smog-forming emissions, along with toxic diesel particulate matter (PM).
The variety of NGVs on the market means they can reduce pollution and greenhouse gas emissions generated by most vehicle sources, from passenger vehicles and delivery trucks to refuse haulers and port trucks.
Because of its huge economy, California is the 12th largest emitter of carbon in the world. And the state’s emissions are costly not only for the climate, but also for public health. According to the California Air Resources Board, 7,300 to 11,000 premature cardiopulmonary deaths per year in California are associated with exposure to fine PM.
