  Iqara - Compressed Natural Gas
Compressed Natural Gas (CNG) is natural gas, which is then compressed for use as a vehicle fuel.
CNG is taken from the existing gas supply, put through a series of compressors, systematically compressing, filtering and drying the gas, before storing it ready for use in a storage bank for immediate dispensing when required.
CNG is a flexible fuel fitting most of your vehicle requirements, be it large or small vehicles.

Natural gas can be used in the full range of vehicles, from passenger vehicles to heavy-duty trucks.
In addition, because natural gas burns cleaner, there is a reduction in vehicle maintenance required, as the interval between oil changes can be increased and there is increased spark plug life.
In addition, because natural gas is lighter than air, it will rise and dissipate rapidly in the unlikely event of a leak, as opposed to other fuels which tend to pool on the ground or enter sewer or water systems.

The battle for strictly applying the Euro norms and the drive to switch-over to CNG as an alternative fuel are some of the examples of the endeavours made by the denizens of the capital towards creating a greater eco-friendly environment.
France, too, had a taste of CNG as an automotive fuel during World War I. But, not much emphasis was given to CNG, due to the use of LPG and a taxation structure on CNG.
Though alternate clean fuel technologies like CNG have been available for quite a few years, only a thousand cars in Delhi and 9000 cars and buses in Mumbai have switched to them, mainly due to the high cost of CNG kits, absence of fuelling stations and lack of a proper marketing strategy by the government.

 General Information on Vehicle Emissions Reduction - ADB.org
Natural gas (85-99% methane) is clean burning, cheap and abundant in many parts of the world.
Because natural gas is mostly methane, Natural Gas Vehicles (NGVs) have much lower non-methane hydrocarbon emissions than gasoline vehicles, but higher emissions of methane.
Given equal energy efficiency, greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions from NGVs will be approximately 15-20% lower than from gasoline vehicles, since natural gas has a lower carbon content per unit of energy than gasoline.
