Natural Gas is a fossil fuel. This means that we can’t use it forever and we should probably think about other ways to heat our home and cook our food. This means switching from hobs and ovens over to ceramic ones and electric versions. Where does natural gas come from and do we have much of it left?
As with any fossil fuel, Natural Hydrocarbon Gas is formed from decomposing animal and plant matter from Eons ago. However this is not the only thing that needs to happen. The matter has to be subjected to extreme heat and pressure over the centuries so that it forms the gas that we use. Also with Natural Gas it becomes a huge contributor to greenhouse gases and the warming of the Earth. It itself is a greenhouse gas and when burnt creates our enemy, carbon dioxide. It is a massive part of the footprint for this and we are faced with a huge task to reduce its use.
It is found deep below the earth’s crust and is usually located near to Petroleum. They are rarely located in easy to reach areas and this costs us time and money, plus resources to find them and tap them. You can help by making sure your boiler is constantly efficient HPR, a Boilers Cheltenham based company can help with that. It’s just one way that we can all be greener and make use of this fuel for the best of as long as possible.
