Adsorbed Natural Gas


As the leading, worldwide resource for automotive activated carbon solutions in gasoline vapor emissions control systems, we have extended this technology advantage for mixed hydrocarbon vapor adsorption and desorption into the rapidly growing natural gas market. Adsorbed natural gas, or ANG, is the enhanced storage of natural gas using an adsorbent when compared to compressed natural gas storage at equivalent pressures.
