Compressed Natural Gas
Motorists whose cars are fueled with compressed natural gas have a new fueling alternative in the city of Milwaukee.
Andy's gas station at 7605 W. Good Hope Road is offering compressed natural gas, through a project developed by VNG, a company based in suburban Philadelphia.
“We see the potential of CNG as a transportation fuel and are excited to count ourselves as a part of its future, ” said station owner Andy Khullar in a prepared statement. “Adding CNG is a great opportunity for me to meet all the fueling demands of my current and future customers.”
The expansion into Milwaukee is part of VNG's strategy to deploy CNG pumps within gas stations in metro areas, focusing on CNG fueling for pickups, vans and passenger cars.
VNG has opened CNG in other major metro areas including Houston, Dallas and Philadelphia, said Robert Friedman, chief operating officer of VNG.
Other companies that are expanding networks of CNG stations, including Trillium CNG and US Gain of Appleton, are focusing on opening CNG stations near highways for over-the-road trucks running on compressed natural gas.
Is compressed natural gas a liquid?
no it's a gas,
compressed to around 1% of normal volume.
If it was compressed to the liquid state, you'd call it liquified natural gas (LNG).
