CNG, or compressed natural gas, is a fuel composed of 90% methane (CH4) produced by fossil gas deposits or, more rarely, by biomass methanisation.
Advantages of compressed natural gas
This fuel, used by vehicles and other devices (boiler, water heater), is cleaner than conventional petroleum fuels and emits less CO2. CNG based on biomass (biogas), has a neutral carbon balance.
CNG also has the same advantages as natural gas over oil in terms of reserves and distribution. In fact, there are more gas reserves than oil reserves, and they are distributed differently around the world. This therefore helps reduce the geopolitical risks linked to fuel supply.
