Why CNG?

Advantages of CNG

Advantages of CNG  Non-toxic
Natural gas contains no toxic ingredients. It is relatively harmless, even when inhaled.

Advantages of CNG  Colourless
When mixed with a specific amount of air and ignited, invisible natural gas burns with a pure blue flame. It is one of the cleanest burning fuels, producing primarily heat, carbon dioxide and water vapour.

Advantages of CNG  Odourless
When taken from the ground, Natural Gas is odourless. A harmless but pungent odour is added as a safety precaution, so as to be able to detect even the smallest quantity of gas in the event of a leak.

Advantages of CNG  Lighter Than Air
Natural Gas is lighter-than-air, so when released into the atmosphere, it rapidly dissipates, as opposed to the heavy nature of Propane or Gasoline, whose dense fumes accumulates at ground level and thus carry a higher flammability risk. Natural Gas also has a higher ignition temperature (628.3 degrees Celsius) than Gasoline (246 degrees Celsius) or Diesel fuel (210 degrees Celsius), which further significantly reduces the chances of an accidental ignition.

Advantages of CNG  Narrow Flammability Range
To help ensure predictable, safe use, Natural gas will only ignite when there is an air-and-gas mixture of between 5% -15% ratio. Any proportions outside of this range will simply not combust.

Advantages of CNG  Cleaner
It is the cleanest-burning fossil fuel available. Natural Gas engines emit up to 40% less greenhouse gas than gasoline or diesel engines. When Natural Gas burns, virtually no harmful pollutants are produced. Reactive hydrocarbons are reduced by up to 80%, Nitrogen oxides are reduced by up to 50% and Carbon monoxide is reduced by up to 50%. Black smoke is virtually eliminated or non-existent. Reduction in the emission of particulates in the atmosphere decrease chance of oil/diesel spills.
