Natgas proposes replacing the normal diesel that fuels buses in the city of Queretaro with natural gas. Juan José Hernández has been working on this project since 2013, with the aim of helping to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and to improve the disposable income of families who live from transport by offering a more economical alternative fuel.
Natgas was created as a company dedicated to the sale of natural gas to the public for vehicles, but it has also created a significant social and ecological links by approaching carriers in the city. "When a carrier decides to convert its vehicle to operate with natural gas, it can obtain finance to do so.
The savings obtained in the price of fuel is over 50 percent with respect to conventional gasoline, and it is used as a source of repayment for this finance."
