Liquefied Petroleum Gas (LPG)
Liquefied Petroleum Gas or LPG is a portable, clean and efficient energy source that is readily available to consumers around the world. LPG is primarily obtained from natural gas and oil production but is also produced increasingly from renewable sources; its unique properties make it a versatile energy source that can be used in more than 1,000 different applications as well as mobility.
LPG is the number one alternative fuel in the EU, currently making up 3% of all alternative fuels and counting 8 million vehicles. Autogas is suitable for cars, vans, trucks and buses. Most petrol vehicles on the road today can be easily and safely converted to LPG. Artusystem Dual-Fuel provides an easy and safe solution to convert diesel vehicles and further promote LPG adaption.
The LPG infrastructure is widely developed and LPG is available at most petrol and diesel dispensing stations in Europe. Recently the usage of Bio-LPG has started in small, but growing quantities This renewable fuel can reduce CO2 emissions by up to 90% compared to current LPG. Renewable LPG can be blended with conventional LPG or can fully substitute it with no impact on the engine.
Compressed Natural Gas (CNG)
Compressed Natural Gas or CNG is simply natural gas mainly comprised of methane that is stored under high pressures while remaining in its gaseous form, mainly as a means to transport it, or as storage for later use as vehicle fuel. In this form, it remains clear, odorless, and non-corrosive
CNG allows synergies with bio and synthetic fuels can be easily integrated, creating a solid link to the renewable electricity sector and green hydrogen.
CNG as a transport fuel offers important benefits to consumers, the environment and the economy. It provides a cost-effective way to meet key EU objectives, including decarbonizing road transport and improving air quality in cities. While CNG offers many benefits, the infrastructure for effective implementation is yet not widely available, and switching existing passenger vehicles is difficult at times as CNG storage in the vehicles requires comparatively a lot of space.
