Interest in natural gas has increased because of the environmental advantages that derive from its use. During combustion, emissions of sulphur dioxide (a somewhat polluting substance), dust and noxious compounds are reduced to a minimum and marginal quantities that, in any case, in relation to the energy produced, natural gas produces less carbon dioxide than other fossil fuels such as petrol and diesel. More information about natural gas can be found in the Natural Gas section of the What is Energy chapter and in the Products area.
