Perhaps you’ve heard of Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG), but are unaware of its potential as an alternative to diesel and use in small-scale applications. In a recently-published White Paper entitled “LNG – An Alternative to Diesel?”, Keith Packham, ESB Applications Manager, Cummins Power Generation, examines some of the benefits and challenges associated with using LNG.
What is LNG?
LNG is natural gas that has been liquefied after being cooled to -259 degrees Fahrenheit. It’s odorless and colorless, and according to the Department of Energy it takes up about 1/600th of the volume of the same amount of natural gas.
Keith’s paper provides a much more detailed look at the composition of LNG, how it’s stored, why it’s used, and some of the factors to consider before switching from diesel to LNG. You can download the article by clicking on the link below.
