Alternate Fuels

The world is changing. The energy sources that powered the 20th Century are no longer acceptable for the 21st Century.  Consumers, governments and businesses alike are demanding alternatives to traditional fuel sources.

Institutions and consumers are less accepting of oil and coal as primary sources of energy, they are looking for greener options to power their work and their lives.

Hydrogen and natural gas are two options for greener fuels. Both fuels can be used to reduce harmful hydrocarbon emissions as compared to oil and coal. States and power companies around the US have been converting older power turbines from coal and oil to natural gas. Buses and delivery trucks are converting to natural gas and hydrogen. Companies around the United States are working to develop hydrogen infrastructure to support freight trucking coast to coast. For both fuels, greater densities and higher efficiencies of energy usage can be achieved by compressing and liquefying for storage and use. In order to create this liquefied state both materials need to be brought down to cryogenic temperatures around -250C to -260C.
