Natural gas becomes part of the green taxonomy of the European union from 2023, which accents on the importance of natural as an energy source in the transition towards green energy and carbon neutrality. When substituting traditional petroleum products with natural gas, the harmful emissions, released in the atmosphere when burning them, are reduced, leading to a better state of the environment. The usage of natural gas allows the toxic substances, soot and the smoke from the exhaust gases to be reduced 4 times.
Natural gas could be used for heating, cooling, production of hot water for industrial and household needs and as fuel in the automotive transport. Compressed natural gas (CNG) is a technology, giving the possibility to realize deliveries of natural gas to all customers, located outside the gas distribution networks of the monopolists and their network, allowing these customers to take advantage of natural gas with competitive prices and no conditions, imposed by the network operators. The advantages are already realized by many companies in different sectors of the economy, such as dairy farms, grain-drying factories, factories for drying tobacco, tailoring establishments, printing house, foundries, factories for creating metal products, construction companies (asphalt bases), mining industry and many more.
