CH4 Organic Gases Gas / Methane Natural Gas Cas 74-82-8 Flammable
1. The relative abundance of methane on Earth makes it an attractive fuel, though capturing and storing
it poses challenges due to its gaseous state found at standard conditions for temperature and pressure.
2. In its natural state, methane is found both below ground and under the sea floor, where it often finds
its way to the surface and the atmosphere where it is known as atmospheric methane.
1. Liquid methane rocket fuel-In a highly refined form, liquid methane is used as a rocket fuel.
2. Natural gas- Methane is important for electrical generation by burning it as fuel in a gasturbine or
steam generator.Fuel-Methane can be used as a gas for ovens, hobs etc. It combusts with oxygen to create fire.
3. Methane in the form of compressed natural gas is used as a vehicle fuel and is claimed to be more
environmentally friendly than other fossil fuels such as gasoline.
4. Chemical feedstock-In the chemical industry, methane is converted to synthesis gas, a mixture of
carbon monoxide and hydrogen, by steam reforming.
5. Methane is used in industrial chemical processes and may be transported as a refrigerated liquid
Liquefied natural gas (LNG) is natural gas (predominantly methane, CH4) that has been converted to liquid form for ease of storage or transport.
