American Gas & Technology LNG Liquified Natural Gas Alernative Fuel American Gas and Technology
American Gas & Technology is an exciting new transportation fuels company with an alternative to gasoline and diesel that’s inexpensive and clean-burning. AG&T has developed and patented a new process that produces liquefied natural gas (LNG) and compressed natural gas (CNG) in nano-scale volumes anywhere there is a natural gas source.
Using natural gas as an alternative transportation fuel is the future for America’s reliance on cars and trucks. Natural gas is abundant, clean-burning and inexpensive. Natural gas (CH4) is also very environmentally friendly.
AG&T’s patented technology allows our fleet customers the convenience and cost-savings of producing and dispensing their own LNG (or CNG) on-site, right in their fleet yard.
LNG Vs. CNG
LNG is more practical than CNG because it provides the same driving range as standard gasoline or diesel, whereas, more than four times the normal tank space would be required for CNG tanks. Multiple tanks increase the weight of the vehicle, making the use of CNG problematic for most fleets. However, AG&T has your solution.
The Future of American Energy Independence
AG&T’s onsite, nano-scale liquid natural gas production equipment is fully automated and cutting edge. The technology allows for the creation of ultra-pure LNG after a series of purification and multiple cryogenic stages. In addition to patent protection, this technology is complicated and very difficult to replicate.
Natural gas consists of 4 hydrogen molecules and only 1 carbon molecule. Natural gas vehicle fuel eliminates many of the pollutants produced when burning gasoline or diesel. According to the EPA, natural gas reduces carbon monoxide emissions 90%-97%; reduces carbon dioxide emissions 25%; reduces nitrogen oxide emissions 35%-60%; potentially reduces non-methane hydrocarbon emissions 50%-75%; emits fewer toxic and carcinogenic pollutants; emits little or no particulate matter; and eliminates evaporative emissions. Natural gas is 80% hydrogen, the cleanest burning substance on the planet. Gasoline is comprised of seven times the carbon, a cancer-causing contaminant" we need to eliminate from our air.
Natural gas historically is priced well below the retail price of gasoline and diesel. The federal government provides LNG producers an additional cash subsidy of $0.46 per gasoline-gallon equivalent when it is sold as an alternative to gasoline and diesel. AG&T can offer to sell LNG at up to a 15% discount to conventional fuels and still retain a very sizable profit.
Dr. Sam Haddad, Professor of Mechanical Engineering at Stanford University, concluded that the Liberty Station™ - “utilizes a technology that will have tremendous value as the Transportation Industry progresses toward reliance on alternative fuels. Furthermore, the liquefier is capable of providing a significant economic advantage over large-scale LNG liquefaction plants since transportation and storage costs are eliminated. In this respect, the LNG Station is a proven technology with unlimited potential for meeting the fuel demands of the future.”
Good For Environment
AG&T is America's answer to
Foreign Oil Dependency
America’s addiction to foreign oil is unsustainable and financially prohibitive. With that said, AG&T believes it is time for Americans to seriously consider investing in a proven technology by domestic natural gas vehicle infrastructure to replace our current gasoline and diesel.
