Liquefied natural gas (LNG) is a low-emission energy source for the needs of industry and transport. It is a suitable fuel for a number of industrial processes, such as heating, drying and food production. In addition, LNG is a good alternative for the energy needs of transportation. Studies show that LNG generates over 20% less greenhouse gases than diesel and as much as 30% less CO2 than fuel oil. LNG generates no sulphur oxide or particle emissions and as much as 85% less nitrogen oxide emissions than the most commonly used fuels.
