Hey gang, CNGchat needs your help!

For over a decade we have enjoyed providing this little corner of the Internet for folks to discuss all things natural gas vehicles. It is the largest forum of its kind: with some 70,000 posts on over 11,000 topics. But with continued low gasoline & diesel prices and strong automaker support for electric vehicles, consumer interest in CNG has dropped considerably, and with it has visitor traffic here. As a result, Google ad revenues no longer cover hosting fees.

If you find CNGchat to be a useful resource then please consider making a modest donation to support keeping this remarkable pool of knowledge available to the alternative fuels community. Thanks!

  • Video of Sweden's first plant for Liquefied Biogas

    Here's a recent video of Sweden's first plant for Liquefied Biogas, used in new Methane Diesel trucks that replace 75 % of the diesel with methane.

      The Sweden biogas . . . actually liquefied biogas (aka LNG when from straight NG) plant is truly impressive.

      It appears to be in rural setting but very sophisticated. USA could learn a lot from tiny Sweden.

      Using a rudimentary biogas approach in China, a national concerted effort has been in place since 2008 called IFAD (International Fund for Agricultrual Development) where the poorest Chinese farmers are building methane digesters and harvesting biogas to improve their meager lives with methane for cooking and lighting, when in past they only had wood to burn (which was hurting forests due to over-harvesting). Chinese government subsidizes half of digester construction cost and plan on 50 MILLION poor Chinese farmers to be using these soon.

      Larger Chinese farms have digesters that feed generators that produce electricity. However, this basic technology has not moved down to rural farmers who literally have been in "wood era" of power generation. See details at: and YouTube showing the rural Chinese methane digesters at:

      Imagine reduction in methane gas release that could be utilized if methane burning small 3 Kw generators were all throughout China backfeeding an integrated electrical grid? Worst yet, why can't USA implement methane digesters and backfeed electric grid which we already have?

        Xebec Adsorption Inc., a global provider of gas generation, purification and filtration solutions for the industrial, energy and renewables marketplace, says it has achieved a breakthrough in its fast cycle pressure swing adsorption technology for upgrading biogas to RNG.

        By optimizing the process design and combining it with a novel adsorption/desorption cycle, Xebec says it can now achieve recovery rates of up to 98.5% while operating at low pressure, allowing operators to maximize revenue, lower operating costs and, consequently, increase profitability.

        According to the company, Xebec has pioneered fast and rapid cycle adsorption technology, bringing its proprietary technology to the biogas upgrading market more than 15 years ago. Adsorption technology is now well-established for upgrading biogas to RNG, and Xebec is a major player, with 27 installations operating globally and a growing number of ongoing projects under planning, procurement and construction.

          The biogas plant for the Saugbrugs paper mill in Halden, Norway is connected to the existing sewage treatment plant and uses sewage sludge from paper production. The Saugbrugs plant is Pentair s first project in Scandinavia:
