What Is LNG?
LNG , “ Liquified Natural Gas” is the liquid form of natural gas. Natural gas liquefies when it is cooled down to -162 °C under atmospheric pressure. If one unit volume of LNG is vaporized, approximately 600 unit volume of natural gas is obtained. LNG’s density is less than half of density of water. LNG is a naturally odorless, colorless, non-corrosive and non-toxic liquid. In order to be perceptible, odorants are added in gas form. When mixed with air, its combustion limits are between %5 and %15 in terms of its volume. Since pollutants is decomposed during liquefying process , LNG is cleaner compared to standard natural gas.
Fields of Use: LNG can be used in anywhere natural gas is needed.
What Is CNG?
CNG is the abbreviation of ‘Compressed Natural Gas’. Natural gas is converted into a high-pressured form through certain processes. CNG is obtained by pressurizing natural gas up to 200-300 bar in order to be stored and transported easily.
Compression of Natural Gas
Natural gas is pressurized by a compressor and then stored in tubes and higher volume gas tanks of different capacities. CNG can be used anywhere natural gas is used from large scale industry to small businesses as well as for residential uses and vehicles.
What Is Natural Gas?
Natural gas is a shapeless, odorless, colorless, flammable gas. It is non-toxic and lighter than air. The gas chiefly consists of methane (CH4), but also contains other hydrocarbons such as ethane, butane, propane and naphtha.
In its primary form, natural gas can be used for residential heating and cooking, for industrial purposes and as fuel, or it can be converted into electricity at a gas power plant. Unlike other fossil fuels, natural gas is clean burning and emits lower levels of potentially harmful byproducts into the air.
Natural gas is a combustible mixture of hydrocarbon gases. While natural gas is formed primarily of methane, it can also include ethane, propane, butane and pentane.
