    History, Hazards and Benefits of LPG. CNG and Gas Alternative energy such as CNG and LNG is an exciting alternative fuel that will enable society to produce a cleaner, safer and inexpensive compared to our established fossil fuels that we use today (liquefied). The uses of these gases we enjoy today has a long history, and extremely perplexing to humankind. There are precautions that must be adhered to concerning storage, use of LPG and CNG. In addition, the risks of using LPG and CNG far out way the benefits of alternative fuel. History acknowledges there was no awareness of what natural gas was; it was unknown to humankind. Occasionally, gas would discharge from underground and when a fire reached the gas, it would ignite the natural gas.…

    Fossil fuels started millions of years ago before the dinosaurs first inhabited the Earth and formed from prehistoric plants and animals hundreds of million years ago. All the energy in oil, gas, and coal originally came from the sun, captured through photosynthesis (Trefil and Hazen 2013, p.53). Over time, rock, sand, and sediment concealed the organic matter and after some years it established huge quantities of fuels. These under the surface resources are still the main fuel source for…

    One solution to reduce traffic –related air pollution is to use natural gas vehicles. According to U.S. department of energy there are about 150,000 vehicles in the Unites states and approximate 15.2 million vehicles worldwide powered by natural gas. Natural gas vehicles, which can run on compressed natural gas (CNG), are good choice for high mileage. Natural gas vehicles generally emit 13-21 % fewer greenhouse gas emissions than comparable gasoline and diesel vehicles. CNG is considered…

    alternative fuel of recent popularity is natural gas. Natural gas is in limited supply, just like oil, but out of the three main nonrenewable fuel sources that are present on Earth, natural gas is the most abundant. With this in mind, the conclusion can be made that Natural gas will not offer a permanent solution to the fuel crisis, but it is a good alternative to be put into consideration. Before we consider natural gas as an alternative fuel source to oil and petroleum fuels, we must first…

    1. Cost Analysis The production of hydrogen from fossil fuels is said to be a mature technology. Of the two main fossils fuels used, natural gas offers the best economics and efficiencies and is the main pathway used to generate hydrogen nowadays, mainly for the production of ammonia and methanol. The other, being coal, can also be used to produce hydrogen but the initial investment is much greater and the efficiency is lower compared to when natural gas is used. Coal can be economically…

    of Oil well Ixtoc 1 in the Bay of Campeche in Mexico in June 1979, releasing 140 million gallons into the sea for ten months. The spilled oil covered the area of 1100 square miles and caused severe damage to marine life. As we are moving to a world where the appetite for hydrocarbon products is growing at an exponential rate, companies are looking for newer places and techniques for extracting oil and gas in distant places often ignored in previous experiments. Offshore oil drilling has been a…

    Methane is the final product of Anaerobic Digestion. A mixture of methane and carbon dioxide is called a biogas and it can be used for heating and can be used as a natural gas. Anaerobic treatment systems are divided into “high rate” systems involving biomass retention and “low rate” systems without biomass retention. High rate systems are characterized by a relatively short hydraulic retention time but long sludge retention time and can be used to treat many types of wastewater. Low rate…
