In addition to API line pipe, IIL also manufactures Medium Density Polyethylene (MDPE) gas pipe for the distribution of natural gas, liquefied petroleum gas (LPG) and other gaseous fuels. These pipes are manufactured on state-of-the-art German and Austrian equipment to meet the performance requirement of British Gas Technical Specifications (BGC/PS/PL2) and the American Petroleum Institute Specification for gaseous fuel (API 15LE).
The automaker will launch heavy-duty pickups and full-sized vans modified to run on gaseous fuel by the first quarter of 2017.
In the case of petrol engines, the gaseous fuel can completely replace petrol fuel due to external ignition.
CDP has developed an innovative method to convert many DI engines to a gaseous fuel. With automakers fitting their product line with more efficient engines using DI, there were barriers in operating a gaseous fuel in a DI engine.
During heating, the biomass undergoes pyrolysis, releasing gaseous fuel species such as hydrogen and carbon monoxide that are then electrochemically converted to water, carbon dioxide and electricity.
The entire gaseous fuel system adheres to GM's strict quality, durability, and safety testing requirements to ensure a superior product.
Their high surface areas (up to 1112 [m.sup.2] [g.sup.-1]) fits these resins for manufacturing chromatographic column, storing gaseous fuel (e.g., hydrogen and methane) and adverse products (e.g., [CO.sub.2]).

The contract awarded to Quantum is to upgrade Volvo's 4- and 6-cylinder engine platforms using Quantum's gaseous fuel injection systems and powertrain engineering expertise, to meet the stringent emission regulations that come into effect beginning in April 2010.
It can run on almost any liquid or gaseous fuel. "We should do a better job on hydrogen than an internal combustion engine," says Schoell, "because it has a lot of heat (BTUs), but not a lot of expansion."
Franklin noted that its proprietary direct oxidation SOFC technology is capable of running on "virtually every commercially available liquid and gaseous fuel," and has already been demonstrated on retail pump gasoline, diesel, kerosene, ethanol, naphtha, natural gas, propane, butane and hydrogen.
