A conference on the operation as well as the business and technological opportunities of CNG as vehicle fuel was held in Parádsasvár on last Friday. The event was attended by Jobbik President Gábor Vona, who also chairs the Hungarian-Russian Friendship Group of the Inter-Parliamentary Union; as well as by Béla Kovács, the Chairman of the Russia-EU Energy Committee of the European Parliament. Beside Hungarian businessmen, the list of the participants included Dutch, Italian, German and Russian economic leaders, featuring the giant venture Gazprom as well as Russian MPs.
The conference was also discussing such issues as the Russian-Hungarian economic relations. Referring to CNG as vehicle fuel, the area was developing dynamically in Europe, but this process is practically at a halt in Hungary, due to the wrong attitude of legislators and the licensing difficulties posed by the authorities.
An Italian manufacturer said, the future development of the technology will allow for an increasingly efficient operation of these machines. As Gábor Vona revealed to us, the representative of an Italian manufacturer showed that there was no deterioration in quality in terms of passenger cars compared to conventional fuel; i.e. driving experience was not at all impacted by CNG-operation. On the other hand, the technology is absolutely competitive in terms of prices and environment protection.
The conference was also attended by Hungarian business leaders who shared their experience with the participants.
Vona pointed out that CNG operation is considered as a window of opportunity in public transport as well, since it can offer significant advantages over gasoline and Diesel oil. He says that the technology could have a major role in the farming industry, since it is more environment-friendly while it would also ensure a cheaper and more efficient agricultural production.
