COMPRESSED NATURAL GAS

COMPRESSED NATURAL GAS, OR CNG AS IT IS COMMONLY KNOW, IS A CLEAN BURNING FUEL THAT CAN BE USED IN PLACE OF GASOLINE, DIESEL AND PROPANE. IT IS OFTEN REFFERED TO AS “THE GREEN FUEL”, REFERRING TO ITS CHARACTERISTICS OF BEING ENVIROMENTALLY FRIENDLY AND SUSTAINABLE. BELOW WE WILL LOOK AT SOME OF THE REASONS WHY CNG IS A BETTER FUEL AND WHY.
ADVANTAGES OF CNG
FEWER BYPRODUCTS
CNG COMBUSTION PRODUCES FEWER UNDESIRABLE GASES THAN THE FUELS MENTIONED ABOVE. SINCE NATURAL GAS IS COMPOSED MAINLY OF METHANE, BURNING IT PRODUCES CARBON DIOXIDE AND WATER VAPOR, WHICH ARE THE SAME COMPOUNDS WE EXHALE WHEN WE BREATHE.
SO WHILE TYPICAL FUELS ARE HEAVILY LOADED WITH CHEMICALS, THUS RELEASING HARMFUL BYPRODUCTS INTO THE AIR WHEN THEY ARE USED, CNG BYPRODUCTS DO NOT HAVE A DAMAGING EFFECT ON THE AIR WE BREATHE OR ON THE ENVIRONMENT.
THE USE OF CNG ACTUALLY REDUCES THE RELEASE OF HARMFUL EMISSIONS, WHICH LEADS TO A REDUCTION IN AIR POLLUTION, THUS MAKING THE ENVIRONMENT SAFER FOR EVERYONE.

AFTER REVIEWING THE VARIOUS PERSONAL, ECONOMIC AND ENVIRONMENTAL ADVANTAGES OF CNG AS AN ALTTERNATIVE FUEL, IT IS EASY TO SEE WHY THE NUMBER OF VEHICLES IN THE WORLD USING CNG HAS GROWN STEADILY AT ABOUT 30 PERCENT PER YEAR.
