Ethane—a Green(er) Clean(er) Transportation Fuel Opportunity © 2013

2013 - Present

Converting the existing CNG (Compressed Natural Gas) fleet to utilize ethane (a waste gas) may be a practical near-term choice with low capital investment. Over the long-term, if the supply of ethane is sustainable, the ethane fleet may be expanded accordingly. An ethane transportation program in the United States may lead the way for wider adoption of ethane as a green(er), clean(er) transportation fuel while the electrical vehicle infrastructure, where appropriate, becomes more fully realized.
