    I have never understood why LNG is talked about as a green fuel when it produces CO2 like petrol and diesel.

    Only if you capture and use the farts from cows.

    No as Natural gas is gas trapped underground that has been tapped and these gas fields do run out eventually. The gas deposits formed over millions of years and once depleted are likely gone forever.

    Unfortunately not. Natural gas is a non-renewable fossil fuel, acquired from underground wells. Establishing the wells usually involves hydraulic fracturing, or "fracking", a very environmentally harmful process.

    Renewable energy sources include solar, wind, hydro, geothermal, and biomass (plants).

    No fuel is 100% efficient. Natural gas can come from renewable sources, or it could come from fracking. Even natural gas from biological sources takes a lot of energy to produce. To get truly renewable energy, the energy used to to produce it would also have to come from renewable sources. A solar array used to generate the electricity needed to run a biofuels plant would come close to being truly renewable.

      What renewable source produces natural gas?

    Brother, You can not use or get 100% power capacity. Always waste some fuel.

    Natural gas is a major component in the mixture of gases produced by the breakdown of organic matter in the absence of oxygen also called as biogas. Biogas can be produced from raw materials such as agricultural waste, manure, municipal waste, plant material, sewage, green waste or food waste, landfills. Biogas is a renewable energy source. Biogas is produced by anaerobic digestion with methanogen or anaerobic organisms, which digest material inside a closed system, or fermentation of biodegradable materials.

    Biogas is primarily methane (CH4) and carbon dioxide (CO2) and may have small amounts of hydrogen sulfide (H2S), moisture and siloxanes. The gases methane, hydrogen, and carbon monoxide (CO) can be combusted or oxidized with oxygen. This energy release allows biogas to be used as a fuel; it can be used for any heating purpose, such as cooking or room heating or bathroom geyser. It can also be used in a gas engine to convert the energy in the gas into electricity and heat. Biogas can be compressed, the same way as natural gas is compressed to CNG, and used to power motor vehicles.
