Many manufacturing facilities across the US are already benefiting from the economic and reliable operations of natural gas engine-driven air compressors that have been in use for as long as 30 years. Advances in engine control technologies and availability of standardized packages have further reduced equipment and operating costs of these air compressors. Click on Industry for information on case studies for some of these facilities.
The U.S. Army is also planning to demonstrate the economics of natural gas engine-driven air compressors at some of its bases. Click on U.S. Army to learn about their plans for demonstrating this technology.
