As an alternative to diesel, Natural Gas Fuels reduce smog pollutants by 60-90% and greenhouse gas emissions by 30-40%. Natural Gas (CH4) is even partially renewable, as it can be recaptured from the decomposition of organic waste.
Thanks to breakthroughs in Hydraulic Fracturing Technology, reserves of over 10,000 Trillion cubic feet are now available for extraction worldwide. The United States alone has enough Natural Gas to meet domestic demand for the next 100 years. Because this environmentally friendly resource is domestically abundant, Natural Gas prices are not subject to the instability of foreign trade commonly associated with refined petroleum products (gasoline, diesel, jet-fuel).
The result is that Natural Gas is reliably, and significantly, more affordable than diesel. On average, Natural Gas costs 30-40% less per Diesel Gallon Equivalent. The two forms of fuel produced by Clean Energy Bridge are Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG) and Compressed Natural Gas (CNG).
