 NEWARK, N.J., Sept. 17 /PRNewswire/ -- The latest in clean, efficient natural gas equipment and appliances will be on display for building owners and property managers at the Natural Gas Clean Energy Expo set for Sept. 27-28 at Raritan Center, Edison, N.J.
 More than 40 natural gas equipment manufacturers will be exhibiting state-of-the-art product lines exclusively for New Jersey's industrial and business community. The event, sponsored by New Jersey's four natural gas utilities, marks the first time the companies have joined together for a statewide Expo.
 Ben White, senior program manager at PSE&G and Expo chairman, said, "The show offers a one-time opportunity for business and industry representatives from all over the state to inspect the entire range of natural gas equipment suitable for their individual applications. The Expo will be especially valuable to any company interested in learning about greater energy efficiency and cost savings available with natural gas equipment as well as anyone who already is contemplating converting from oil-fired to natural gas heat."
 Manufacturers of natural gas heating, cooling, water heating equipment and controls are participating in the Expo. Their representatives will be available to answer questions about specific needs and applications. In addition, natural gas-fueled vehicles will be on display and will be demonstrated by utility representatives.
 White said that with enactment of state and federal regulations governing underground oil storage tanks, more companies are switching operations form oil to natural gas. "The State of New Jersey now has laws which require the installation of monitoring and protection devices on underground oil storage tanks above 2,000 gallons, and could impose heavy fines in the event of leaks," he said.
 White also noted that many businesses and factory owners find that natural gas -- which is the cleanest burning fossil fuel -- can help them meet air emission standards as well. The Clean Air Act amendments of 1990 and the National Energy Policy Act of 1992 soon will require businesses with fleets of 10 or more vehicles to begin incorporating into their fleets alternative-fueled vehicles -- such as those powered with natural gas.
 White said natural gas absorption cooling systems do not use refrigerants containing chloroflurocarbons (CFCs), which contribute to the destruction of the earth's ozone layer. The use of CFCs are being phased out as a result of an international agreement.
 The Expo will be open from 10 a.m. to 9 p.m. on Monday, Sept. 27 and from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Tuesday, Sept. 28. The event is being coordinated by PSE&G, Elizabethtown Gas Company, New Jersey Natural Gas Company, and South Jersey Gas Company. Admission is free.
