On April 10 and 11, the 7th GASNAM congress was held in La Nave (Madrid), under the slogan “Renewable gas: innovation for sustainable mobility”. The congress had more than 50 national and international speakers, more than 30 tables of work, lectures and the largest exhibition of natural and renewable gas vehicles in Europe.

During this congress, CIDAUT has presented an innovative adsorbed natural gas (ANG) storage system that has been implemented in a dual-fuel van, as a pilot test within ECO-GATE project.

The storage of adsorbed natural gas (ANG) allows storing more energy per unit volume at the same pressure as the storage of compressed natural gas (CNG). This innovation allows the use of tanks that work at lower pressure (60 bar), with the advantages that this entails: greater flexibility in the design of the tank, greater formability, lower refueling costs, the possibility of home refueling and greater security.

CIDAUT has carried out the characterization of the loading and unloading processes of this type of adsorbed natural gas storage systems in an experimental facility also developed within the scope of the ECO-GATE project.
