What is the difference between Propane and natural gas?
Hello, my name is XXXXX XXXXX am happy to help with this question.Propane is part of natural gas is in its raw form. It is one component of natural gas - has been extracted from the natural gas. Natural gas is made up of several gases including propane, butane, ethane and mostly consists of methane.If you need further info, just hit Reply.:-)
Why can't natural gas be compressed and put in a bottle like propane?
Because natural gas, in its natural form, cannot really be used until it has been processed. We can pull out the propane, the methane, butane - these are the byproducts of the cleaning process. The reason why propane is used more in domestic homes as compared to propane is due to the storage and risk factors involved. Propane is much more stable than natural gas. You would not want to use a natural gas tank on a grill, as an example, due to its highly combustible state. While propane burns and powers things, natural gas is highly volatile and can be dangerous.
