The chemical composition of CNG (Compressed Natural Gas) primarily consists of methane (CH4), which accounts for around 95% or more of its composition. The remaining components include small amounts of other hydrocarbons like ethane (C2H6), propane (C3H8), and traces of nitrogen (N2), carbon dioxide (CO2), and other impurities. It is a type of alternative fuel that is used as a cleaner and more environmentally friendly alternative to traditional fuels.

Advantages of CNG
Green Fuel

Commonly referred to as the green fuel because of its lead and sulphur free character, CNG reduces harmful emissions. Being non-corrosive, it enhances the longevity of spark plugs. Due to the absence of any lead or benzene content in CNG, the lead fouling of spark plugs, and lead or benzene pollution are eliminated.

Safe Fuel

The properties of CNG make it a safe fuel. It is stored in high gauge seamless cylinders which are certified so negligible chance of leakage. It is lighter than air, so in case of leak it just rises up and disperses into the atmosphere and mixes in the air easily and evenly.

High auto ignition temperature

CNG is less likely to auto-ignite on hot surfaces, since it has a high auto-ignition temperature (540 degrees centigrade) and a narrow range (5%-15%) of in flammability. It means that if CNG concentration in the air is below 5% or above 15%, it will not burn. This high ignition temperature and limited flammability range makes accidental ignition or combustion very unlikely.
