Coal to Natural Gas and Fuel Switching Solutions
Coal to Natural Gas
What is Coal to Natural Gas?
Coal to Natural Gas is a "fuel switching" strategy which has a number of key benefits for companies with either a small or large fleet of cars, trucks or other vehicles.
A few of the benefits of upgrading from Coal to Natural Gas include;
lower fuel expenses
lower operational costs
lower maintenance costs
decreased greenhouse gas emissions
significant reductions in Nitrogen Oxides (NOx)
American Energy Independence through decreased reliance on "dirty oil" from the middle east OPEC and muslim oil
Running on "green fuel" such as Biomethane, B100 Biodiesel, Synthesis Gas or natural gas, our CHP Systems are the greenest "clean power generation" systems available.
CHP Systems (Cogeneration and Trigeneration) Plants
Have Very High Efficiencies, Low Fuel Costs & Low Emissions
The Effective Heat Rate is Approximately
4100 btu/kW & System Efficiency is 92% Plant
The CHP System below is Rated at 900 kW and Features:
(2) Natural Gas Engines @ 450 kW each on one Skid with Optional
Selective Catalytic Reduction system that removes Nitrogen Oxides to "non-detect."
Our CHP Systems may be the best solution for your company's economic and environmental sustainability as we "upgrade" natural gas to clean power with our clean power generation solutions. Our emissions abatement solutions reduce nitrogen oxides (NOx) to "non-detect" and can be installed and operated in most EPA non-attainment regions!
What is Fuel Switching?
Fuel Switching is a way to move away from one type of fuel to another. Diesel to Natural Gas is one of the quickest-growing types of Fuel Switching in the transportation industry due to the savings it provides the companies that own fleets of cars, trucks and tractor-trailers. Even when you consider the change-outs of diesel engines to natural gas engines, the fuel savings of natural gas provides a very quick return on investment.
In addition to fleet owners of there are a large number of other Fuel Switching opportunities for customers in the commercial, industrial and utility industries.
Popular Fuel Switching opportunities exist in transitioning away from fossil fuels. Replacement fuels for fossil fuels include the following renewable fuels;
Carbon Dioxide Emissions
Since 1750, humans have emitted over 5 trillion pounds of carbon emissions into the atmosphere. Roughly half of this has ended up in the oceans where it is beginning to damage the coral reefs. The other half is still in the atmosphere and causing global warming. Each pound of CO2 takes up as much space as a 500 pound person.
The formula (which should be good for a year or two) is:
C(t) = 2.58 ×1012 + 1240×t, where t is seconds since the start of 2007.
C is tonnes (metric tons) of carbon dioxide emissions.
2205 x C gives pounds of carbon dioxide emissions.
That comes to over 43 billion tons/year or over 86 trillion pounds/year.
Carbon dioxide (2) = 1 carbon atom with 2 oxygen atoms.
Carbon has relative weight 12 and Oxygen 16.
So it takes only 12 pounds of carbon to make 12+16+16 = 44 pounds of CO2.

hundreds and hundreds and hundreds of billions of dollars every year for oil,
much of it from the Middle East, is just about the single stupidest thing that
modern society could possibly do. It’s very difficult to think of anything
more idiotic than that.”
~ R. James Woolsey, Jr., former Director of the CIA
According to R. James Woolsey, for Director of the Central Intelligence Agency, “The basic insight is to realize that global warming, the geopolitics of oil, and warfare in the Persian Gulf are not separate problems — they are aspects of a single problem, the West’s dependence on oil.”
