Natural Gas Fuel Burns Cleaner than Petroleum Fuels, Claims SBI

22 Nov 2012 • by Natalie Aster

Natural gas fuel has been promoted and adopted as a transportation fuel due to its following features and prevalent market conditions: 

Natural gas burns cleaner than conventional gasoline or diesel fuels
By equivalent energy content, retail natural gas fuel typically costs less than gasoline or diesel fuel
In some regions and countries, natural gas reserves are greater than petroleum reserves.

Similarly, natural gas production in some markets is significantly greater than the production of petroleum or petroleum products (e.g. gasoline, diesel, and other refined fuels). According to the report “Global Markets for Natural Gas Vehicle Components” by SBI, greater natural gas consumption provides greater energy security in those regional and national markets and can prove more elastic to demand than petroleum fuels.

Natural gas fuel burns cleaner than petroleum fuels due to its lower carbon content and features lower lifecycle greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions than petroleum fuels (fewer total emissions from “well-to-wheel” or from fuel production to engine combustion). Numerous governments have sought out vehicle conversion to natural gas in order to reduce transportation-related GHG emissions. The realization of lower lifecycle GHG emissions using natural gas transportation fuels is dependent upon vehicle type, drive cycle, and engine calibration.

More information can be found in the report “Global Markets for Natural Gas Vehicle Components” by SBI.
