Say goodbye to the nuisances of diesel!

  • Noise reduced by up to 10 decibels - when idling, 10 natural gas vehicles are equal to 1 diesel engine.
  • Reliable cold starts, even in mid-winter - The auto ignition temperature is 595° with natural gas compared to 290° with diesel.
  • No need for urea injections or other complex systems to treat exhaust gases.
  • No bad odour in the cab, on hands or clothing.

    Flawless record

  • Industry governed by strict and exhaustive regulations.
  • Carriers operate and refuel their vehicles worry-free.
  • Truck tanks fitted with a safety valve that releases natural gas in case of over-pressurization.
  • Natural gas vehicles are safer than diesel vehicles in case of an accident.
  • Natural gas is non-toxic.
  • Natural gas is lighter than air so it dissipates quickly, with no risk of soil or water contamination.
  • Vehicles

    New natural gas vehicles are subject to Transport Canada safety regulations and to Environment Canada Vehicle Emission Requirements. However, in the case of an existing vehicle that is converted to CNG or LNG, provincial regulations apply. In Québec, conversions must respect the Natural gas for vehicles installation code (CAN/CSA B109) and must be supervised by a mechanic who holds a certificate of qualification (TCG) from Emploi-Québec. Converted vehicles are also subject to the Safety Standards for Road Vehicles, including the periodic inspection of the fuel supply system.
  • Refuelling station

    Compressed natural gas (CNG) stations must respect the Natural Gas Vehicle and Fuelling Station Installations (CAN/CSA–B108). Stations that supply liquefied natural gas (LNG) must respect the Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG) – Production, Storage, and Handling standard (CAN/CSA Z276-07). The initial commissioning, maintenance, repair, or dismantling of stations must be supervised by a person holding a certificate in CNG/LNG installation techniques (TIRGNC or TIRGNL) from Emploi-Québec.
  • Mechanical workshops

    Natural Resources Canada has produced a technical guide which defines the requirements to be respected to ensure the safe maintenance of CNG/LNG vehicles indoors. The initial commissioning, maintenance, repair, or dismantling of stations must be supervised by a person holding a certificate in CNG/LNG installation techniques (TIRGNC or TIRGNL) from Emploi-Québec.
We're going for it 100% because we believe in it.
