Fuel of the Future

We live in the 21st century – an era of new, exciting and cutting-edge technology.

Scientists agree that it has become essential to replace fossil fuels with an alternative source of sustainable energy for the future.

Experts believe that a great deal of damage is caused to our environment through the harmful emissions from conventional petroleum products. Carbon dioxide (CO2) is released into the atmosphere, and excessive amounts contribute directly to climate change. Over the past 150 years, the widespread consumption of fossil fuel and petroleum products has caused a 25% increase in carbon dioxide in the atmosphere.

Some of the harmful effects of the use of fossil fuels are smog, acid rain and pollution. These are extremely damaging to the environment, and pose a threat to the existence of not only fauna and flora, but ultimately the health and well-being of mankind. Furthermore, fossil fuels are non-renewable resources and therefore scientists believe that it is imperative that a sustainable alternative source of energy be found.      

                                                                                                          

Compressed natural gas (CNG) is one of the most effective means of replacing fossil fuels. During combustion almost no carbon dioxide emissions are released and the emissions are far less damaging to the ozone layer. It is therefore considered to be the most environmentally-friendly fuel available on the market today. CNG is relatively cheaper compared to other alternative fuels such as petrol and diesel. The price of 1m3 compressed natural gas is 1.30 GEL, while one litre of petrol (Euro Regular) costs on average 2.14 GEL. CNG is used in conventional gasoline engines which have been adapted for the consumption of dual fuel (gas and petrol). 

Why Compressed Natural Gas?

There is an increase in the demand for consumers wishing to use natural gas as fuel, and this is primarily due to rising oil prices on the world market. Until around 3 to 4 years ago, the bulk of gas-powered vehicles on the market were trucks and buses, but nowadays this segment of the market is being dominated by light passenger vehicles and SUV’s. 

This is confirmation that natural gas, as an alternative to petrol or diesel, is rapidly becoming more popular around the world. This trend applies to both light and heavy vehicles.

Why Do Almost 22 Million People Worldwide Now Choose CNG?

Environmentally Friendly - 

Natural gas is the cleanest type of fuel in the world. As opposed to conventionally powered vehicles, CNG powered vehicles do not emit carbon dioxide, nitric acid or other harmful substances. CNG is completely safe for human beings, and does not harm the environment.

Safer

CNG is stored in spherical or cylindrical containers, which are much stronger than gasoline containers. In the event of an incident such as a leakage or spill, CNG, unlike other fuels, will instantly evaporate into the air and will therefore not be absorbed into the soil or contaminate groundwater.

More Efficient

CNG consists of 90% methane and has a much higher octane than petrol or diesel, and thus enhances the efficiency of an engine. Its consumption protects the engine, and cleans the valves and the fuel combustion system. CNG also prolongs the lifespan of the engine oil as CNG burns much slower.

Cheaper

CNG is considerably cheaper than other conventional fuels such as petrol and diesel. The price of 1m3 compressed gas is 1.30 GEL, while the average cost of one litre of petrol (Euro Regular) is around 2.14 GEL.

Worldwide statistics of Natural Gas Vehicles (NGV)

According to statistics provided by NGV journal, there are around 22 404 405 million natural gas driven vehicles around the world. www.ngvjournal.com
