Special Tanks to Help Expand CNG Network

If the infrastructure to mass produce special tanks and stations is provided, the country can save as much as one million liter of gasoline per day
CNG is projected to comprise up to 35% of Iran's total fuel consumption basket by 2022.CNG is projected to comprise up to 35% of Iran's total fuel consumption basket by 2022.

Iran's Research Institute of Petroleum Industry and Sharif University of Technology have piloted a project to indigenize special compressed natural gas tanks, which can help expand the CNG fueling network, the National Iranian Oil Refining and Distribution Company's director for CNG stations said.
"CNG is typically compressed to 220 bar for use in vehicles, yet the new technology, dubbed as adsorbed natural gas, can not only reduce the pressure to 35 bar but also increase the tank total storage capacity by 40%," Hamid Qasemi was also quoted as saying by Shana, the National Iranian Oil Company's news agency. 
According to the official, the ANG system creates the low pressure, conformable CNG storage solution for full-scale and affordable natural gas vehicle-hybrid deployment. 
Lower compression pressures required to fill ANG tanks allow for the more rapid growth of the sector.
