Use of LNG As Alternative Energy Source For Environmental Conservation
Generally Liquid Hydro-carbons are being used in our country as Energy source (cooking, transport &
Industrial sectors) and the share of Liquid Hydro-carbons as per present pattern of usage is around 40% of the total energy
application in various sectors. Although Solar Energy, Wind Power & Atomic Energy are emerging as preferred
alternative sources, there is a need to supplement eco- friendly fuels such as Bio-Gas, Natural Gas etc. as substitutes for
Liquid HC’s particularly in urban pockets to improve Air Quality and human health standards. Due to high carbon content &
lower burning efficiencies in the commercially viable fuel chambers- there is a growing environmental concern to replace
the liquid fossil fuels with more efficient & feasible options. This paper aims at finding one of such options in the form of use of re-gasified LNG.
