Natural Gas

Natural Gas is a gas consisting predominantly of methane (typically > 90%) but may also contain ethane, propane and heavier hydrocarbons. It is the cleanest of the fossil fuels. The combustion of natural gas releases very small amounts of sulphur dioxide and nitrogen oxides, virtually no ashes or particulate matter and lower levels of carbon dioxide, carbon monoxide and other reactive hydrocarbons.
