Enterprises and research institutions of Vietnam and the Republic of Korea (RoK) discussed advanced technology for a natural gas vehicle (NGV) at the Asean-RoK forum which opened in Ho Chi Minh City recently, reported

Participants at the two-day forum, jointly held by the RoK-Asean Secretariat on NGV and Vietnam’s Ministry of Industry and Trade, also shared information and experiences in developing the natural gas production industry and proposed policies to encourage the use of natural gas for means of transport.

Since the first taxi running on liquefied petroleum gas (LPG) was put into use in 2001, Vietnam now has a total of nearly 900 taxies and buses partly or fully run on LPG.

Cuu Long Petro Gas Service Transportation Joint Stock Company and Indochina Petroleum Transportation Joint Stock Company said all of their 551 taxies are fully running on LPG, refuelling at six out of 10 LPG filling stations nationwide.

An official of the RoK Environment Ministry, Hyoung Lull Jeon, said that since 2000, the country can boast 20,000 buses and 465 rubbish vans running on LPG and 261 LPG filling stations.

The RoK targets having 23,000 vehicles running on LPG and compressed natural gas (CNG) instead of diesel by 2010 and 28,000 vehicles by 2012 together with building 440 new gas filling stations.
