LNG (liquefied natural gas) is clear, colorless, non-toxic liquid that is formed when natural gas cools to -162 ° C (-260 ° F). Natural gas is cooled to a liquid state, which reduces its volume and allows for easier, safer storage and transport.
In the short and medium term, LNG and bioLNG are practical, economical options that reduce emissions for large trucks and heavy transport. LNG can help reduce greenhouse gas emissions from high-performance engines by up to 22% compared to conventional diesel. BioLNG, virtually carbon neutral 100% biofuel produced from organic and agricultural waste, can reduce life cycle emissions by up to 80-95% *.
