Abstract. Natural Gas has been drawing industrial sectors attention as a promising alternative fuel. This solutions attractiveness depends on the quality and efficiency of the storage and transport methods employed. Porous media are known to be an efficient manner to store natural gas by the adsorption mechanism, also known as Adsorbed Natural Gas (ANG). Temperature exerts significant influence on adsorption efficiency. Studies applying Phase Change Materials (PCM) as heat exchanger in ANG…
