During her visit at the FPT Industrial plant, the French Minister of Ecological and Solidarity Transition in charge of Transport, Elisabeth Borne, reiterated the government’s support for the natural gas sector. The FPT Industrial plant located in Bourbon-Lancy, Saone et Loire, is where compressed natural gas (CNG) engines are manufactured.
“I am very happy to be in this beautiful place anchored in its territory, which shows that the industry has a future in our country, and that the energy transition is an employment opportunity.” I thank Iveco, the French Association of Natural Gas Vehicles (AFGNV) and all the industry players for this day of exchange and their constant participation to advance in the sector,” said Elisabeth Borne in her speech.
“I would like to highlight the specific issue of biogas: CNG allows significant reductions in fine particles and NOx emissions, but it will not allow, without biogas, to comply with our climate objectives. It is necessary to go further, faster, to develop the production of biogas, I believe a lot in the CNG industry and I am sure that together we will achieve our clean mobility goals,” she added.
