ANG is an alternative fuel option for large, light-duty vehicles, like SUVs, half-ton pickup trucks and service vans, made possible by Ingevity’s long history of activated carbon expertise. Our Nuchar® FuelSorb™ activated carbon monoliths reduce the storage pressure of natural gas without sacrificing the on-board volume of gas stored through the process of adsorption.
ANG is counterintuitive: It reduces the pressure of natural gas by 75%, allowing the monolith to store 50% more fuel than an empty cylinder filled with traditional compressed natural gas (CNG) at the same reduced pressures.
This lower-pressure storage removes the need for large, costly commercial CNG stations and enables safe, economic fueling at work and at home. ANG saves money, is more efficient and reduces greenhouse gas emissions when compared to comparable CNG, gasoline and diesel vehicles.
