GE’s MicroLNG system can liquefy natural gas at any point along a gas distribution network, powering both industrial and residential sites and fueling vehicles in remote locations. This can reduce the impacts of long distance fuel transport. Compared to the combustion of diesel fuel, using LNG can also reduce CO2e emissions and fuel costs.
GE's MicroLNG system has the capacity to produce 150,000 gallons of LNG per day. LNG produced with one MicroLNG system can be used to fuel 16,870 heavy trucks replacing diesel-powered trucks with equivalent fuel economy. This could enable fleet operators to avoid over 80,000 metric tons of CO2e per year, equivalent to the annual GHG emissions of approximately 16,000 cars or 4,200 trucks on US roads, assuming an average truck travels approximately 14,000 miles per year.
