Energtek, Inc., a commercial distributor of natural gas to emerging markets using proprietary ANG (Adsorbed Natural Gas) technology, tailors its solutions to the growing market of 2- and 3-wheel vehicles in Asia, as well as the global Natural Gas Vehicle (NGV) market, and pipeless, domestic gas supply markets serving industrial and manufacturing sectors.
There are many advantages to natural gas. First, it is more evenly distributed around the globe than oil and â€“ with the constantly rising cost of oil (and, as a result, gasoline) â€“ makes more sense than gasoline, both financially and in terms of resources. Second, natural gas burns cleaner than gasoline. In fact, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency says that natural gas vehicle fueling eliminates evaporative emissions; emits little or no particulate matter; reduces carbon monoxide emissions 90 to 97 percent; reduces nitrogen oxide emissions from 35 to 60 percent; potentially reduces non-methane hydrocarbon emissions between 50 and 75 percent; reduces carbon dioxide emissions by 25 percent, and; emits fewer toxic and carcinogenic pollutants than gasoline.
Lastly, natural gas is safe. According to the U.S. Department of Transportation, the NG delivery infrastructure in the U.S. is the safest way to transport fuel. Natural gas rarely ignites, and only under extremely unusual conditions. In fact, there are no records of a fire in any natural-gas vehicle currently on American roads. Further, in high-speed vehicle crash tests, natural gas performs admirably, since it is virtually impossible to destroy a natural-gas fuel tank. And if all that isnâ€™t enough, natural-gas vehicles deliver up to 50-percent less noise pollution than vehicles running on gasoline.
In addition to all its other pluses, natural gas is adaptable to a wide range of vehicles, including gasoline-powered, diesel-powered and fuel-electric hybrids. In fact, most natural-gas conversions on the road represent simple, inexpensive after-market conversions, and a switch enables drivers to easily change from natural gas to conventional fuels when NG stations are unavailable.
