Noise pollution at CNG (compressed natural gas) stations has been eradicated by a jointly developed project between Greka Engineering and Technology and Hong-Kong listed CMIC ENRIC.
 
The partnership has produced the very first 25MPa Compression Free Intelligent Environment Friendly or ‘Compressor-Less’ CNG station in China.
Technology experts from across the country described the initiative as being advantageous in terms of safety, energy saving, environmentally-friendly, low cost and high efficiency.  Suitable for both local and international markets, the product has a ‘very good application prospect in the current natural gas market.’
 
The invention’s credentials are both environmentally and neighbourhood-friendly. Residents close to CNG stations will no longer suffer interrupted sleep from continuous noise and vibration of a compressor used to operate existing conventional stations.
 
Greka Engineering and Technology chairman and chief executive Randeep S Grewal says: “I am delighted with the innovation which sits at the heart of the Chinese government’s commitment to environmentally-conscientious and pollution-free initiatives. Furthermore it’s a global first and one that was nurtured and developed in China.”
 
The first order was delivered July 5th 2016  to partner CMIC ENRIC. Going forward the partnership will market this concept through environmental agencies and to organisations involved in the CNG retail business.
