        The rep with the HEIL Autocar-Refuse Truck w/ISL-G NZ Natural Gas Engine said targeting specific engine/tank packages to the different duty cycles of curbside collection (constant starts/stops), dumpster collection (tethered routes from yard), and transfer big rigs (long runs to landfills) has allowed CNG to shine by selecting extra torque engines where appropriate and fuel capacities that fit the assignments (try this with over-the-road trucking . . )

        US Hybrid displayed its Class 8 LNG Plug-in Hybrid Truck. The largest classification, Class 8, is > 60,000 lb.

          No spell check error. the ANG technology in the previous post about the ACT Expo in Long Beach should be spelled: adsorbed.

          Adsorption is defined as the adhesion of an extremely thin layer of molecules onto the surfaces of particles. German physicist Heinrich Kayser coined the term "adsorption" in 1881. Adsorption is a different process from absorption, in which a substance diffuses into a liquid or solid to form a solution.

                IVECO Press Room Nov 3, 2020 - IVECO S-Way NP 460 wins Sustainable Truck of the Year 2021 Award

                Maurizio Cervetto, Vado e Torno Deputy Editor, stated: “With the IVECO S-Way NP, IVECO is setting a new reference in productivity and efficiency for long-haul alternative traction vehicles. The IVECO S-Way is not only the only natural gas vehicle with 1000-mi range; it is also the new reference in consumption with 4.12 km per kg of gas.

                Thomas Hilse, IVECO Brand President, commented: “We are very proud of this important award, which supports our view of the vital role of natural gas in achieving a sustainable long-haul transport. It is the only solution that is immediately available. It is the starting point on the path to zero-emissions, and the IVECO S-Way proves that it is already a reality. It achieves a 95% reduction in Particulate Matter and 90% in NO2 compared to Diesel. And, when running on bio-methane, it generates 95% less CO2.

                IVECO has been investing in alternative tractions for more than 20 years, developing the extensive experience that makes it today’s reference for natural gas in the European market with more than 35,000 natural gas vehicles sold. This has led to the development, in just a few years, of a widespread network of some 80 LNG fuelling stations in Italy alone.

                              Tom Sewell, Lifetime Achievement Award

                              Tom Sewell is a lifelong resident of Tulsa, Oklahoma and graduate of Oklahoma State University with a degree in electrical electronics technology. In 1984, Tom started his own company, Sewell Electrical, a small electric company which he ran and operated with a few employees. Tom began his involvement in the compressed natural gas (CNG) industry in 1989 when a major oil company approached him to build a CNG station at the Midway Truck Stop between Tulsa and Oklahoma City. As a result, Tulsa Gas Technologies (TGT) was established and the first TGT CNG dispenser was manufactured in July 1990. The next year Tom and TGT joined what is now NGVAmerica. By 2000, Tom was chosen to help lead the largest gas company in India in starting a CNG program within the city of New Delhi; TGT has now supplied over 500 CNG dispensers across India. In 2010, Tom started Blue Energy Fuels as an operating company to develop and operate CNG stations in Oklahoma; since then, BEF has consistently sold 600,00 to 800,000 gallons of CNG every year.

                              In January 2012 Tom began his broadcasting career at Cox Media Group’s KRMG “WHEELS SHOW”. The show continues to be broadcasted nationwide on CMG’s sister stations and is a weekly call-in show on Saturday mornings. Tom’s knowledge and experience has benefitted our industry; he was there in the beginning days of the NGV 4.0 Standards Committee that developed industrywide CNG codes and standards, and Tom was part of the initial advisory group to lead NIST into calibration standards for CNG dispensers. He later helped co-develop a CNG dispenser proving meter to calibrate CNG dispensers. Throughout his career, Tom has served as an informal energy and transportation advisor and confidante to multiple elected officials, including former Oklahoma Governor Mary Fallen, former U.S. Rep. John Sullivan, and U.S. Senator James Inhofe. Tom’s understanding of our industry and relationships with policy makers in Washington including representatives from his home state of Oklahoma have greatly benefited our industry and its efforts over the years. Tom’s newest challenge is providing virtual pipeline services to fracking sites and natural gas emergency gas outage work. Tom and his wife Jan have been married for 40 years and are proud parents of three children and eight grandchildren. Tom Sewell is a giant in our industry; it is with great pleasure that we honor him with this Lifetime Achievement Award.
