Fuel Switching

What is Fuel Switching?

Fuel Switching is a way to move away from one type of fuel to another.

Coal To Natural Gas, Diesel to CNG, Diesel to LNG and Diesel to Natural Gas are the fastest-growing types of Fuel Switching in the transportation industry due to the savings it provides the companies that own fleets of cars, trucks and tractor-trailers. 

Even when you consider the change-outs of diesel engines to natural gas engines, the fuel savings of natural gas provides a very quick return on investment.

In addition to fleet owners of there are a large number of other Fuel Switching opportunities for customers in the commercial, industrial and utility industries. 

Fuel Switching to renewable fuels is becoming a rapidly-growing and wide-spread solution for helping companies transition from fossil fuels and reduce their potential environmental liabilities. Particularly with "greenhouse gas reporting" regulations eminent.  

Replacement renewable fuels for fossil fuels include the following renewable fuels;



Fuel Switching

Amine Units  *  Casinghead Gas  *  Compressed Natural Gas  *  Diesel to Natural Gas  *  Diesel to CNG  *  Diesel to LNG

Electric Compression  *  Gas Compressors  *  Gas Dehydration  *  Gas Gathering  *  Gas Liquefaction  *  Gas Processing

Gas Sweetening  *  H2S Removal  *  Heater Treaters  *  Iron Sponge  *  Liquefied Natural Gas  *  Midstream Oil and Gas

Natural Gas Treating  *  Upstream Oil and Gas  *  Pipeline Compression  *  Stranded Gas  *    Vapor Recovery  *   Waste Heat Recovery


What is Liquefied Natural Gas?

Liquefied Natural Gas, or LNG, is natural gas (methane or CH4) that is cooled to - 260 degrees F. (below zero). At this temperature, natural gas turns into a liquid (liquefied natural gas) making it very economical to ship large amounts of energy in a relatively small space.

When natural gas has been liquefied, the natural gas that was once a "gas" now takes up to 600 times LESS as a liquid, as when it was in its previous gas state.

Because Liquefied Natural Gas is still natural gas, its carbon emissions as well much lower as compared to other fossil fuels, such as coal, diesel or oil.

Liquefied Natural Gas is colorless, odorless, colorless, non-corrosive and non-toxic. It weighs less than half the equivalent amount that water does.

Liquefied Natural Gas achieves a higher reduction in volume than compressed natural gas (CNG) so that the energy density of Liquefied Natural Gas is 2.4 times that of compressed natural gas or 60% of that of diesel fuel. This makes Liquefied Natural Gas a highly cost-effective fuel to transport over long distances where pipelines do not exist. Cryogenic tanks and LNG ships transport the LNG around the world on oceans and cryogenic tanks transport the LNG on trains and 18-wheelers. Think of cryogenic tanks like an insulated thermos bottle as the LNG must be kept at - 260 degrees F. (below zero) to remain in its liquid state.

Liquefied Natural Gas is used as any fuel may be used, as well as transporting natural gas to markets, where it is then re-gasified and distributed in natural gas pipelines.

“spending hundreds and hundreds and hundreds of billions of dollars every year for oil, much of it from the Middle East, is just about the single stupidest thing that modern society could possibly do. It’s very difficult to think of anything more idiotic than that.” 
~ R. James Woolsey, Jr., former Director of the CIA

Price of Addiction
to Foreign Oil

According to R. James Woolsey, for Director of the Central Intelligence Agency, “The basic insight is to realize that global warming, the geopolitics of oil, and warfare in the Persian Gulf are not separate problems — they are aspects of a single problem, the West’s dependence on oil."


We support the Renewable Energy Institute by donating a portion of our profits to the Renewable Energy Institute in their efforts to reduce fossil fuel use by transitioning to Renewable Energy Technologies and reducing/eliminating Carbon Emissions, Carbon Dioxide Emissions and Greenhouse Gas Emissions.

The Renewable Energy Institute is "Changing The Way The World Makes and Uses Energy" SM by providing research & development, funding and resources that reduce the cost of Renewable Energy Technologies and making a faster transition to Carbon Free Energy, Clean Power Generation, & Pollution Free Power."
