CNG or Compressed Natural Gas is made by compressing natural gas to less than 1% of its actual volume at standard atmospheric pressure. It is generally stored and distributed in hard containers at a compressed pressure. The containers are spherical or cylindrical in shape. Compressed natural Gas is used in the traditional gasoline driven cars having an internal combustion engine. Often these vehicles are converted into bi-fuel vehicles. Due to the increasing prices of gasoline, natural gas vehicles are used increasingly in Asia Pacific countries. Environmental problems are also a big factor in this respect as diesel and other fuels are a big contributor to pollution. Compressed gas on the other hand is environment friendly and brings about no harmful effect on the ecological balance.
