Vehicle fleets owned and operated by cities are now running on Compressed Natural Gas (CNG). Cheaper, cleaner, and abundantly available, CNG is formed when natural gas is compressed to less than 1% of the space it would normally occupy in the atmosphere, and in this state it must be safely contained in special cylinders. Ensuring that these containers are safe and free from dangerous defects is paramount to protecting both those using and fueling the vehicles. This can be realized not only through a cost-efficient regulatory framework that is adequately supported by nationally-accepted codes and standards, but also through third-party certified comprehensive training and third-party certification for the inspector tasked with ensuring CNG cylinders and infrastructure are in safe operating condition.
