Can we talk about vehicle emissions? We often hear about zero emissions vehicles, but is that a true statement? Actually, no. Much of the pollution from vehicle travel is particulate emissions from tires. But let’s say we are specifically comparing an internal combustion engine vs. the motor of an electric car (EV). The answer is still no… Electric cars are not emissions free; they just transfer where the emissions are being made. Instead of tailpipe emissions, the EV emissions are made at the power generation site. Every car on the road is powered by oil and gas (and for EV, sometimes coal, fuel oil, nuclear, etc.). If you have a specific question, send us a message or plan to join us at the Eastern Gas Compression Roundtable, May 2-4, 2023 at the David Lawrence Convention Center in Pittsburgh, PA.
