    Is this true that Adsorbed Natural Gas technology (ANG) allows to store at least 2.5 more gas under the same pressure as compressed gas?Does that mean that if we
    store gas at 248 bars as ANG it will hold about
    23 Mega joules per liter?If this is true, it's wanderfull that it still not used as widespread
    energy storage.Looks much safer then CNG and cheaper than gasoline.

    This type of gas storage technology is being developed for hydrogen for mobile applications. I wasn't aware of its application to natural gas so thanks for bringing it to our attention. At first glance it looks promising. I note that heat is required to regenerate the gas to release it from the activated carbon. This is a drawback but presumably not a showstopper.

    I think that it works for natural gas even much
    better than for hydrogen since hydrogen molecules are much smaller.I'm afraid that for
    hydrogen even this technology will be too bulky because few silicon-gel or carbon atoms are needed to contain only one hydrogen atom.But if you have data to compare natural
    gas and hydrogen storage in adsorbent I will
    be glad to know.
    Also I read that low voltage current could be
    used to release methane molecules from
    adsorbent.I guess that possibility of leakage
    is much smaller for ANG than for CNG.If this is so it could be next replacement for gasoline
    storage.
