Clean natural gas is a simple molecule with an incredible role to play
The electric power sector has reduced its emissions significantly over the past decade by switching away from Coal-fired power generation, with Natural Gas responsible for 2/3rds of the reduction. Since 1970, precursor emissions in the US have dropped 77%, Americans are breathing the cleanest air in decades! All the while, Natural Gas has increased its share of total generation to about 40%.
Both Texas and California set out to reduce transportation emissions. Texas focused on replacing older medium and heavy-duty diesel trucks with CNG, LPG, LNG, diesel hybrid and new diesel. California focused on BEV test projects. Overall California spent 46% more and accomplished 43% less.

Natural Gas systems are engineered and operated for safety and reliability. According to government agencies, pipelines are the safest mode of energy delivery, and this should be no secret. Statistically, pipelines are involved in .01% of all transportation accidents in the US. Over 2.5 million miles of US pipelines are safely and efficiently helping over 69 million households get the energy they need for cooking and heating.
Ariel is involved in three current energy industry mega-trends. There are hundreds of Ariel Compressors serving in Biogas (RNG), the Hydrogen (H2) Economy, and Carbon Capture Utilization and Storage (CCUS). Ariel is transforming the environmental impact of energy and how it is produced, stored, and transported.
Ariel Biogas compressors gather organic waste gas for injection into sales pipelines, CNG fueling, or mobile pipeline distribution.
Ariel Hydrogen compressors are utilized all through the value chain- H2 production, distribution, storage, and dispensing.
CO2 is captured from industrial sites and robust Ariel CO2 compressors are employed in injection, storage, pipelines, or industrial uses.
