The European Union is increasing its activity in the energy sector, and the basic principle of its energy policy, among others, is environmental protection, which is to reduce the negative impact of the use of different energy resources. From this point of view, natural gas with its undisputed ecological values is very positively presented in this field.
Of all the fossil fuels used in the economy, natural gas is the purest energy carrier. When burning natural gas, much fewer pollutants are emitted into the atmosphere than with other hydrocarbons. The liquefied natural gas is further purified and consequently contains 95% of methane and only 5% of other components. Such composition makes it a fuel lacking toxic and corrosive properties. Even in the event of a leak, the LNG evaporates completely and does not pollute the soil or the surface and groundwater.
When using each type of gas, safety aspects of its storage and use are also very important. Perfectly mastered storage methods using tanks with special “full containment” or “tank in tank” design and proven handling procedures provide exceptionally high levels of safety in liquefaction, transport and regasification.
The use of gas instead of solid fuels in households is more desirable in terms of energy efficiency, comfort and environmental protection.
