Technical Meeting Reports

Technical Forum (2014) – Long Beach CA, USA

Posted By dperry, Sunday, 27 July 2014

Following the inaugural NGV Global Technical Forum in Mexico City as part of NGV Global 2012, the pattern was set for a follow up Forum in Long beach, California, as part of NGV Global 2014. This webpage provides links to Session 1 and Session 2 presentations from the Forum.

Despite a very large room being set aside, it was standing room only, with keen interest in the three sessions:

CNG Cylinder Issues

•   Fill Quality: ensuring customer satisfaction to leave a refuelling station with a full tank.

•   End of Life Issues: Safe disposal of CNG cylinders.

•   Cylinder re-inspection and re-testing techniques: Improved techniques and procedures.

•   Tank Valves: Design changes for safe removal; reliability of solenoid valves; cylinder/valve/PRD as a system.

Gas Composition and Quality

•   The discussion will identify the separate issues associated with the composition of CNG, and biogas/biomethane, allowing the Technology Forum to consider what actions by NGV Global might be appropriate to add to the debate.

LNG Issues

•   Techniques for minimising methane emissions from stations and on board tanks

•   Control of the dispensing process and quality of dispensed LNG

This final session does not have a presentation associated with it.
