Compressed Natural Gas (CNG), commonly known as "methane", is a natural gas that compresses at a pressure of 220 to 250 bar and is used as an energy source in industry or motor fuel in vehicles. Natural gas is of Russian origin, it is not mixed with domestic gas and is of exceptional quality. The quality of natural gas is excellent due to a high and uniform percentage of methane of 97%.
CNG burns cleaner when compared to traditional petrol and diesel. Carbon monoxide emissions are reduced by roughly 80 percent, and 44 percent fewer hydrocarbons are produced in comparison to gasoline-powered vehicles. CNG cars also run quieter than gasoline and diesel vehicles, which results in less noise pollution.
CNG is cheaper fuel than petrol and diesel. If a vehicle's average consumption is 8l/100 km of petrol, if converted to LPG it's consumption would be around 10l/100 km of gas. But, if we convert it to CNG, it's consumption would be 5,5kg/100 km of methane. It is more than obvious what are the cost savings by switching to CNG.
In the event of a collision, CNG cylinders are less dangerous than gasoline and diesel tanks because of its size, structure, and location within the vehicle. These cylinders have safety devices which are designed to release the gas if there is a higher than normal pressure or temperature. The ignition temperature of CNG is 600⁰C, which is higher than gasoline (320⁰C) and diesel (285⁰C). This means that CNG vehicles are less likely to catch fire under any circumstances. In the event of a leak, CNG is lighter than air, meaning that it will dissipate into the atmosphere, unlike gasoline or diesel which pools on the ground and serves as a fire hazard.
CNG does not have sulphur, particulate matter, traces of heavy metals or toxic additives in it, which may contaminate your motor oil.
Lower maintenance costs
The maintenance cost of your vehicle will be cut down since there can be longer periods between tune-ups and oil changes.
Less damage to your car
CNG combusting leaves little to no residue when compared to traditional gasoline and diesel. This means that damages to pipes and tubes in the vehicle’s engines are reduced.
Dedicated natural gas engines are superior in performance to gasoline engines because natural gas has an octane rating of approximately 130, whereas super and unleaded have octane levels of 95 and 98 respectively. One can agree that the benefits that come from using CNG are very appealing. In the future, it can be predicted that many more citizens will be keen on either converting to CNG or purchasing CNG vehicles.
Improving the level of energy efficiency of boilers
Improvement of ecological aspects
Reducing emissions of hazardous and toxic combustion products: Sulfur dioxide (SO2), nitrogen oxides (NOx), carbon monoxide (CO) and particulates of soot and ash, that is, increase of the ecological efficiency of the technical system for the production technology and heating.
Improved working conditions
Reduces noise, injuries of workers, vibration and excludes all manipulation with dirty fuel oil and the like.
Cheaper maintenance. Increases the service life of boiler equipment.
Quick return on investment in conversion
The repayment of the investment is achieved in a very short time, meaningful financial savings are achieved, operating costs are reduced in the field of meeting the energy needs.
