AbstractIn Bolivia, the government has developed the National Natural Gas Vehicle Conversion Plan with legal support and favorable social conditions to encourage the use of natural gas in the transport sector. Although this central government initiative is present, there is a weak implementation process at the local level. Tar city is not the exception, until 2004, natural gas vehicles in the city were not present, on the contrary; there has been an increase in LPG fuel vehicles that are dangerous and use a subsidized product. The purpose of this document is to determine the feasibility of fuel change, the emission performance of the CNG vehicles, and the infrastructure required for the CNG conversation. The legal framework and the stakeholders’ behaviour required for the conversation will be analyzed. This document proposes a participative NGV conversion plan that will take advantage of the potentialities of Tarija city, in terms of location and resource availability.
