Autogas opportunities: enabling the reduction of emissions

Autogas is an immediate alternative fuel solution that can address the emissions from the 250 million+ passenger cars on the road today.

The vast majority of the 250 million passenger cars already on EU roads today run on petrol and diesel. According to ACEA statistics, 97% of new car sales in 2019 were vehicles with internal combustion engines, which will stay on the road for 11+ years. Rapid decarbonisation and air quality improvements require new and parallel measures be taken to enable the reduction of emissions from older vehicles, such as LPG retrofit programmes. During a time of economic recession where new car sales are forecasted to drop by 25% this year, measures other than new vehicle purchase programmes should be deployed to ensure a just social transition towards the overall goal of carbon neutrality and clean air.

250 Million #AutogasOpportunities - a retrofitting solution

Facts and figures

Affordable Cleaner
The retrofit cost is from 500-2K Euro, and quickly recouped by the driver through lower fuel costs. Consumers save on average 50% compared to conventional fuels, and at the same time reducing emissions. Autogas produces much fewer polluting particles than conventional fuels - 98% less NOx than diesel and 90% less PM than petrol. It is a real solution to address air quality immediately.
Available now Renewable
More than million cars run on Autogas on European roads. Autogas is the most used alternative fuels in the EU and a mature technology. BioLPG is a drop-in ready substitute which doesn’t require new technologies or infrastructure development. BioLPG has the potential to meet 100% of European LPG demand by 2050.

Vision for Autogas

Road transport is responsible for over 70% of all transport sector GHG emissions, and remains a critical challenge for the environment. Pollutant emissions are also a major health risk for EU citizens. Autogas can play a significant role in reducing both GHGs and pollutant emissions, today.
