Energtek Inc. is a world leader in the development and commercialization of Adsorbed Natural Gas (ANG) technology. The company’s proprietary technology provides a more efficient and cost-effective method in bringing natural gas to end-users versus existing compressed natural gas (CNG) and liquefied natural gas (LNG) technologies.
The supply of cheap and easy-to-access oil is becoming more and more limited every day. Resources necessary to produce oil – equipment, manpower, financial resources – are also rather limited. These factors together are driving the price of gasoline higher and higher. Rather than chasing after a diminishing resource, Energtek firmly believes there is a better way. There are several solid reasons that natural gas is the most practical motor fuel alternative to oil.
Natural gas is cheaper and environmentally cleaner than oil. In addition, it is available in greater quantities and in general, is more evenly distributed throughout the world. In many places around the globe, with natural gas available locally offering low transportation costs, natural gas costs much less than it does to import oil. Prices are determined locally – there is no international spot market for natural gas as there is for oil. Also, natural gas does not have to be refined, like oil, in order to used as a motor oil.
Natural gas is primarily composed of methane. Methane is one of the simplest and most abundant resources found in nature. Unconventional natural gas resources including methane hydrates are the most abundant fossil fuel on the planet and represent a powerful untapped potential. Estimates place the number of methane hydrates at 6,500 times higher than the amount of natural gas produced worldwide in 2006. It is believed that nearly one-third of all methane hydrates are located within the provincial waters of the United States.
Another reason Energtek believes a switch to natural gas makes sense is that converting internal combustion engines to run on natural gas and other alternative fuels is a rather easy and inexpensive process. Perhaps the most important reason for a switch to natural gas-powered vehicles is that methane is the cleanest burning of all existing fossil fuels and is even cleaner burning than several renewable fuels. Adoption of natural gas as a motor fuel would have a tremendously positive effect on the environment of the planet.
