Tanzania’s Public Transport, Household Cooking Switch to Natural Gas

Tanzania has moved to implement the policy of conversion of diesel or gasoline powered vehicles to natural gas. The ministry of transport has made the engines of sixty buses of the country’s Bus Rapid Transit to be compatible to both gasoline (petrol) and natural gas.

The state hydrocarbon company, Tanzania Petroleum Development Corporation (TPDC) has announced plans to build 25 new gas stations, to address problems of inadequate infrastructure. A $65Million project, initiated by the government, aims to power 8,000 cars in Dar es Salaam, the capital city and commercial hub and supply 30,000 households with Compressed Natural Gas (CNG) for cooking.
