RESEARCHING ALTERNATIVE FUELS

Liquefied Natural Gas

Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG) is a clean burning fuel, has the capability to reduce fuel costs, and is readily available to the majority of our mining customers worldwide. As a result, Caterpillar is seeing a growing demand around the world for natural-gas powered equipment.

Of particular interest to many mining customers and Caterpillar is the potential to leverage natural gas for reduced fuel costs and greenhouse gas emissions. The technology we are pursuing for large mining trucks offers substitution of diesel with natural gas, as well as lower greenhouse gas and criteria pollutant emissions when compared to today’s diesel engines. This technology in our fully integrated solution will be a key differentiator in the mining industry.
