“The CNG/LNG/RNG market in construction equipment market to be the fastest-growing market”
Natural gas is more environment-friendly than diesel and gasoline. It produces 25% less sulfur, nitrogen, and carbon pollutants. Natural gas has methane as its primary component, with traces of ethane, propane, butane, and nitrogen. Natural gas engines burn cleaner than other engines and have minor differences from their diesel counterparts. Natural gas engines also produce less noise and vibrations, thereby increasing operator comfort.

Liquefied natural gas (LNG) is mostly methane that has been cooled down to convert it into liquid form. Renewable natural gas (RNG) is a natural gas produced from organic waste materials such as food waste, garden and lawn waste, and animal and plant waste. It is also produced from degraded carbon wastes such as paper, carboard, and wool. Biogas is produced from organic wastes, and it is cleaned and conditioned to remove non-methane elements. According to California Resource Board, RNG from landfill-diverted food and green waste can reduce greenhouse gas emissions by 125%, and RNG from dairy manure can result in a 400% reduction in greenhouse gas emissions on replacing traditional vehicle fuels. It produces 70% lesser greenhouse gases than diesel or gasoline, making it the most environment-friendly fuel. It is also economical compared with diesel and gasoline. Natural gas is the most promising alternative fuel for construction equipment. Construction companies that offer CNG powered construction equipment are Caterpillar and JCB.
