Natural gas is the most environmentally friendly fossil fuel, and emits far less CO2 during combustion than coal or oil. The high calorific value of natural gas makes it a highly efficient energy source with a variety of areas of application. Russian natural gas is characterized by an especially high calorific value. Rich in methane, it is regarded as the highest-quality gas worldwide.
Natural gas is a very efficient fuel for the generation of both electricity and heat with low emission of pollutants.
Moreover, by using natural gas as a fuel, it is possible to significantly reduce environmental pollution, particularly in city centres and conurbations.
