The use of natural gas in industries, trades and Manaus gas stations reached its peak in August this year, averaging 107.942 distributed cubic meters per day, largest non-thermal consumption from the start of commercial operations of Amazonas Gas Company (Cigás), in 2010. With 86% this total, the industrial sector was highlighted with 92.467 m³ / day for the 34 Business.

A year and five months using natural gas for the production of stamped metal artifacts, Metalúrgica Sato is one of the responsible for the increase in fuel consumption in the Industrial Pole of Manaus. "We noted a relative improvement in the economic scenario and, for the type of segment that we operate, natural gas is making all the difference ", He explained the director Fernando Moschini, which uses natural gas in three greenhouse equipment.

currently, the Cigás serves the following industries: Ambev, Bike Norte, Carboman, waxes Johnson, Climazon, Coca Cola, DDW, Flax tapes, Keihin, Metalfino, Honda Moto, Honda- HCA, Neotec, Novamed, Nissin Brake, Procoating, Saint Gobain, Samsung, Videos, Yamaha, Video IV, Eternit, Universal, Sato, Ripasa, Klabin, Daido, Daikin, FCC, Showa, Sodeco, Metalsete, Caloi and Corprint.

The fuel usage also reduces the risk LPG storage, dispenses refueling operations with trucks and the payment is made after consumption.

By having a clean burning, the fuel does not emit particulate and also significantly reduces downtime for cleaning, representing operation and maintenance gains. All this without counting the quality gains: due to the chemical composition, natural gas reaches ideal temperature curves and ensures high quality standards, providing more competitive end product.
