Coalbed methane (CBM) or coal seam gas (CSG) as it is known in Australia is becoming an increasingly important source of energy around the world. Many countries such as United States, Canada, Australia and China are investing in the CSG industry. Arise in the cost of conventional natural gas and many other energy resources, along with a decline in these conventional resources and issues such as climate change have encouraged a global interest in alternative resources of energy like CSG. The estimated quantity of CSG worldwide is around 1.4?1014 m3, it is clear that coal seam gas is a significant source of energy. CSG can be the alternative fuel for high fuel-consumption industries such as agriculture. In this article, a technical analysis was conducted to show the potential of natural gas in replacing diesel in agriculture. A comparison of different conversion methods such as dual-fuel and mono-gas systems is undertaken. Data was collected from a number of sources to determine the potential demand for natural gas in the agricultural sector in Queensland (QLD) and New South Wales (NSW). Also, a conversion cost analysis is conducted. Analysis finds compressed natural gas (CNG) to be the preferred alternative fuel to diesel engines in the agricultural sector.
Talal Yusaf is currently the Executive Director of the International and Development at the University of Southern Queensland and Professor in the Faculty of Health Engineering and Sciences. He is also leading the bioenergy/biofuel research group at the National Centre for Engineering in Agriculture, Australia. From 2010 - 2013, he led the International Sponsorship and Research Partner (ISERP) team at USQ. He obtained his first PhD on Alternative Energy from UKM and the second PhD on Biomechanical Engineering from his current University (USQ). He is the Editor/guest Editor of excellent international Energy journals (Energy, Applied Energy, Energies) with extensive publications in high ranked international journals. He is also visiting/Adjunct Professor at International Universities such as University College London UCL, University Malaya UM and University Malaysia Pahang UMP.
