MSRTC Debuts India's First LNG-Powered Bus

The Maharashtra State Road Transport Corporation (MSRTC) has made history by unveiling India's inaugural bus powered by Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG). This pioneering initiative marks a significant leap forward in the nation's efforts towards adopting cleaner and more sustainable fuel alternatives for public transportation.

The LNG-powered bus, a first of its kind in India, represents a major milestone in MSRTC's commitment to environmental stewardship and reducing carbon emissions. By transitioning to LNG, MSRTC aims to mitigate the adverse impacts of conventional fossil fuels on air quality and public health, while also contributing to India's broader sustainability goals.

The adoption of LNG technology in public transportation underscores MSRTC's proactive approach towards embracing innovation and leveraging cutting-edge solutions to address environmental challenges. LNG is known for its cleaner combustion properties, resulting in lower emissions of pollutants such as particulate matter, nitrogen oxides, and sulfur oxides compared to traditional diesel fuel.

Furthermore, the introduction of LNG-powered buses is expected to lead to operational cost savings for MSRTC over the long term, owing to the relative affordability and availability of LNG compared to diesel. This move aligns with the government's vision of promoting alternative fuels and reducing the dependency on imported petroleum products.

The debut of India's first LNG-powered bus by MSRTC sets a precedent for other public transport operators across the country to embrace sustainable fuel technologies. It highlights the potential for LNG to play a pivotal role in transforming India's urban mobility landscape and fostering a cleaner, greener future for generations to come.

Indian PM2.5's Oxidative Potential Far Exceeds Europe's

A recent study highlights the significantly higher oxidative potential (OP) of fine particulate matter (PM2.5) in India compared to Europe. PM2.5, tiny particles with a diameter of less than 2.5 micrometres, can penetrate deep into the lungs and even enter the bloodstream, causing various health issues, including respiratory and cardiovascular diseases. The study, conducted by researchers from India and Europe, revealed that the OP of PM2.5 in Indian cities is five times greater than that in European cities. OP measures the ability of PM2.5 to generate reactive oxygen species, which can cause ..
