Leading Singapore LNG distribution company, GasHubUnited Utility, is pleased to announce the official opening of its liquefied natural gas (LNG) cylinder bottling plant and distribution centre in Jurong Island, and an exciting partnership with Spiral Energy, Singapore's only cultivator of superfood spirulina.

LNG, the energy known to provide the best thermodynamic yields and therefore delivers the best energy efficiency, is also significantly more competitive in price than other energy sources.

It releases 45-50% less CO2 than coal, 30% less CO2 than fuel oil, dramatically reduces nitrogen oxide emissions, does not emit soot, dust, or fumes, and produces insignificant amounts of sulfur dioxide, mercury, and other particulates compared to other fuels. Additionally, it is safe, non-toxic, leaves no ground or water residue, and does not harm aquatic life.

As the first in Singapore to bring LNG cylinder distribution to industrial and commercial users, GasHub is now on a quest to make LNG even more environmentally friendly.

GasHub, together with Spiral Energy, have developed an innovative solution to achieve carbon-neutrality while providing cleaner energy, by directing the CO2 from the combustion of LNG into the cultivation of spirulina, which is considered a first in the world. 

While rising carbon dioxide concentrations in the air can be beneficial for plants, as high concentrations of carbon dioxide spur plant growth, CO2, unfortunately, remains the main culprit of global climate change. 

"We are concerned that LNG, albeit its significantly lower emission of CO2, still impacts our environment," explained Mr Edward Loh, CEO of Spiral Energy, "which got us thinking on how we can further lower the carbon output, or even put it to better use."   

"Hence, we came out with an innovative solution of turning this threat into a form of nutrients for plants," Mr Loh added, "and we will be the first in the world to cultivate spirulina through the harnessing and usage of carbon emitted from the combustion of LNG."
