Project for Liquified Natural Gas (LNG) Production for Use in Automobile Transportation 911716
By the end of 1987, the Secretary of Energy of the Argentine Republic reached to an agreement with INVAP Company to demonstrate the feasibility of the liquid methane production (LNG).
INVAP developed the technology of liquefying miniplants based on the concept of turboexpansion, making use of energy that makes Natural Gas (NG) reach urban centres through the gas pipeline.
Simultaneously, a plant on a small scale applying the flashing and isoenthalpic phenomena, built. In this way, experiences using LNG as fuel in a vehicle powered by Otto Cycle engine, could be carried out.
