The concentration of gases contributing to climate change is increased by human activities, particularly by the utilization of fossil fuels in industrial processes and agriculture. The utilization of natural gas engines is characterized by the lowest carbon dioxide emission levels of all fossil fuels. Due to the fact natural gas is low in carbon, but has a high hydrogen content, natural gas has the most favourable carbon dioxide balance. The combustion of natural gas produces around 40 – 50% less carbon dioxide than when coal is burned to produce the same amount of energy. Notably it also has low emissions of sulphur dioxide (SO2), oxides of Nitrogen (NOX) and particulate matter.
As a fuel, natural gas is set to become a significant source of power in the coming years. Natural gas is projected to become the most significant fossil energy medium in the next 50 years. Natural gas can also come in the form of LNG (Liquefied Natural Gas) and CNG (Compressed Natural Gas).
In countries where the natural grid is unreliable and supplies of natural gas are abundant, gas engines provide an excellent source of reliable island mode power.
