This course is all about Natural gas, the cleanest fossil fuel, which is a highly efficient form of energy. It is composed chiefly of methane; the simple chemical composition of natural gas is a molecule of one carbon atom and four hydrogen atoms (CH4). When methane is burned completely, the products of combustion are one molecule of carbon dioxide and two molecules of water vapor. Natural gas delivered to customers is almost totally free of impurities, is chemically less complex and its combustion therefore results in less pollution than other fuels. In most applications the use of natural gas produces near zero sulfur dioxide (the primary precursor of acid rain), very little nitrogen oxides (the primary precursor of smog) and far less particulate matter (which can affect health and visibility) than oil or coal. Technological progress allows cleaner energy production today than in the past for all fuels, although the inherent cleanliness of gas means that environmental controls on gas equipment, if any are required; tend to be far less expensive than controls for other fuels.
