The 5th Conference and Exhibition on CNG
IRAN NGV 2012
During the past decades, environmental issues as well as energy supply were paid more attention by countries throughout the world.
Thereafter, natural gas was also increasingly introduced as an appropriate alternative to traditional fuels to be used in diesel and gasoline vehicles. According to the statistics given by the website of Association for Natural Gas Vehicles (IANGV), there are currently more than 14 million natural gas vehicles traveling in the world, showing that the use of natural gas in transportation sector has globally increased.
At present, Iran by investing more than US$3 billion in order to substitute natural gas for gasoline as transportation fuel is considered as one of the pioneering countries in the field of natural gas vehicles, in such a way that, in Iran, an average of more than 18 mcm/day of natural gas is consumed by vehicles.
Holding the four former conferences & exhibitions on CNG and related industries successively in 2008 up to 2011, the peerless interest of the people involved in CNG industry within domestic state, private companies and organizations, favorable contribution of some of foreign companies and helpful cooperation of Asia Pacific Natural Gas Vehicles Association (ANGVA) as well as Association for Natural Gas Vehicles (IANGV) through their official endorsement of these conferences, further highlighted the necessity of holding the 5th conference at level. As a result, it was agreed that "The 5th Conference and Exhibition on CNG " (IRAN NGV 2012) would be held in Iran in the summer of 2012, by Hamayesh Sanat Institute as the Iranian permanent secretariat of CNG and ANGVA who has officially endorsed the 2012 event as well. We hope that this conference and exhibition would provide domestic companies with the knowledge of markets and lead foreign manufacturers and investors to enter Iran’s CNG market.
