Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG)
Liquefied Natural Gas is natural gas that has been cryogenically cooled to its liquid state.
It is the same gas or methane that is piped throughout the UK for domestic use but, by cryogenically cooling the gas to -162°C, its volume is reduced making it easier to store.
Watch our video to see how BOC's LNG and BioLNG are helping customers to deliver a cleaner future:
BioLNG is a sustainable version of Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG) produced by the anaerobic digestion of organic waste. By moving to BioLNG, the CO2 savings of up to 20% created by LNG can be boosted to as much as 95%. And, as with LNG, it’s cheaper than diesel. Vehicles will continue to be supplied with LNG in the usual way and an equal quantity of biomethane will be injected into the UK Gas Grid to balance the quantity used for vehicle refuelling.
