A cheaper way to produce less polluting and more heat producing natural gas
As scientists in San Diego reported on March 27, the new technology offers the prospect of cheaper production of a concentrated form of natural gas with many of the advantages - in terms of lower storage and shipping costs - of known frozen fruit juice concentrates, liquid laundry detergents, and other household products that have had the water removed.
Scientists stated at the 243rd National Meeting & Exposition of the American Chemical Society (ACS), the largest scientific society in the world, that this "natural supergas" would produce a higher temperature when burning than normal fuel and would occupy approximately 40% less of space in pipelines, tank trucks and storage chambers. But according to Dr. Mohammad G. Rabbani, who reported on the study, its potential benefits go beyond that: making natural gas a better source of hydrogen for use in fuel cell-powered vehicles in the contested "hydrogen economy." from the future.
