In many of the rural homes natural gas is used as a replacement to petroleum gases. Many of the waste products are recycled to produce the natural gas, which is generally used for cooking, heating and lighting purposes. It is also used to generate electricity.

Components of Natural Fuel Gas:

This natural gas contains mainly and other gases like carbon dioxide, and butane which are heavier hydrocarbons.

Risks with Natural Fuel Gas:

This natural gas is termed as a pure fuel however it also contributes to global emissions by emitting particulate matter contributing to atmospheric pollution and risk of deposition in the lungs, and circulatory system. Yet another risk in using the natural gas is production of a poisonous gas carbon monoxide an odorless, smokeless and without fumes. Persons who breaths this gas get asphyxiated and die. So conclusion is though the natural gas is a clean fuel gas but it has also certain risks towards pollution and life.

Now a days detectors are available for detection of carbon monoxide and other poisonous gases commercially to safe guard against them.
