Description:French government and industry leaders pledged to promote the use of natural gas in personal and public transport vehicles as a clean-fuel alternative to other petroleum products. The new, wide-range co-operation agreement aims to dramatically increase the use of natural gas for vehicles (NGV) by 2005, focusing particularly on public transport and government owned utility vehicles. It is expected to provide an immediate boost to NGV use - at least 1000 NGV powered buses are expected to be on the roads by the end of 2001.
