Compressed natural gas, or CNG, is natural gas under pressure which is:
Compressed Natural Gas (CNG) is the cleanest burning alternative fuels available. Natural gas vehicles (NGV) emit up to 30% less greenhouse gas than gasoline or diesel vehicles.
The use of Compressed Natural Gas fuel reduces costs significantly for vehicle owners. Natural gas averages 40-60% less than diesel or gasoline (depending upon local markets).
Compressed natural gas is nontoxic and disperses quickly. It has a higher ignition temperature than gasoline and diesel fuel, which reduces the chances of accidental ignition.
Natural gas engines can reduce noise by as much as 50% compared to diesel engines. This ensures a longer life of your engine and save a lot of money.
Liquefied natural gas LNG is natural gas predominantly methane which is:
|converted to liquid form by cooling it to approximately −162 °C for ease of storage or transport. It takes up about 1/600th the volume of natural gas in the gaseous state||a higher reduction in volume than compressed natural gas (CNG) so that the energy density of LNG is 2.4 times greater than that of CNG or 60 percent of that of diesel fuel.|
|relatively high cost for production and need to store it in expensive cryogenic tanks.||efficient to transport over long distances where pipelines do not exist.|
