What is CNG?
Compressed natural gas (CNG) and liquefied natural gas (LNG) are clean alternative fuels that are domestically produced. They are alternatives to diesel and traditional oil-based gasoline. Natural gas is readily obtainable and CNG is created by compressing natural gas to less than one percent of its volume at standard atmospheric pressure. CNG is produced domestically from drilled natural gas wells or in combination with crude oil manufacturing.
What Are the Benefits of CNG?
Natural gas is one of the cleanest burning fossil fuels available today. Conventional diesel and gasoline-powered vehicles produce more emissions in the environment compared to natural gas engines.
Natural gas is a less harmful fuel alternative as it is nontoxic, noncorrosive, less combustible than most other fuels and has few associated health risks. While diesel fuel flash points range from 126 to 205 degrees Fahrenheit and gasoline is 250 degrees, the flash point for natural gas it 1,100 degrees. In addition, CNG is stored under high pressure and since it is lighter than air, any leaks will dissipate instead of sinking and puddling.
Cost Effective
Compressed natural gas offers a 30 to 50 percent savings over gasoline, diesel and other petroleum products. With an increased reliance on oil-based gasoline over the years, the availability of CNG is not only stable, but also a realistic option for those searching for a greener, more affordable fuel alternative.
The U.S. is currently number one in natural gas production in the world. As we continue to move towards alternative fuels, we are reducing our reliance on foreign fuel and creating more U.S. jobs.
