northwest natural gas co (NWN) Key Developments

EnerG2 and NW Natural Partner to Improve Fuel Storage

EnerG2 and NW Natural are partnering to improve the fuel storage on board vehicles that use Compressed Natural Gas (CNG) by developing a new adsorbed natural gas technology. The research and development project is intended to make natural gas a more useable transportation fuel for consumers and businesses through a new approach to an emerging technology called "adsorbed natural gas." The adsorbent material packs inside an existing CNG tank and increases the energy density of natural gas at a given pressure. This allows the vehicle to travel longer distances. A CNG tank with adsorbent material could contain 20% more energy at certain pressures and extend the vehicle range proportionately.
