Workshop on ‘Clean Fuels for Cooking & Transport: Social, Environment & Health Benefits’
The conclave on the theme “Clean Fuels for Cooking & Transport: Social, Environment & Health Benefits” covered topics on cooking fuels including penetration of PNG in India along with improving the efficiency of supply chain in LPG distribution specifically in remote / rural regions. The health impact due to switchover to clean cooking fuels was a topic which was deliberated in detail during the workshop.
Apart from clean cooking fuel there was also a focus on clean and sustainable transport which needs to be developed in India. During the workshop the area of discussion include use of LNG as a transport fuel and India leapfrogging from BS IV to BS VI type engines and its potential impact was discussed in detail. During the workshop there was representation from auto manufacturers to deliberate on EV’s, hybrid and hydrogen vehicles which are considered as a future of mobility.
