LNG: clean carbon-free energy source of the future. Scientists and the Department of Energy highlight LNG to be the cleanest fossil fuel and possibly to comply with the new environmental standards.
When compared with diesel, natural gas fuel illustrates the following reductions: a 25% reduction in carbon dioxide (CO2), and 80% reduction in nitrogen oxide (NOx), and a 97% reduction in carbon monoxide (CO) emissions.
The reduction in CO2 emissions is vital during the current energy transition sought by the European Commission, it represents an excellent alternative to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and help combat global warming.
The properties of natural gas (low environmental impact of its combustion), its energy performance and its abundant reserves distributed around the globe make it an energy of the future: natural gas use is expected to account for 25% of the world energy portfolio by 2035, compared to 21% today. In retrospect, natural gas is an excellent complementary solution in the context of an energy mix with renewable energies (solar, wind, hydropower, biomass, Biofuels: Ethanol and Biodiesel) to produce the global necessity of electricity or fuel.
