    Energtek Incorporated is in collaboration with the Philippine government to have Natural Gas Tricycle Energtekthe Metro Manila tricycles run on natural gas. The company develops storage systems for ANG or adsorbed natural gas.

    The CNG Lite storage system combines adsorbed natural gas with low-pressure technology. The set up is primarily aimed at fuelling two and three wheeled vehicles. The tanks are designed to store the natural gas on a working pressure of around 6MPa with a capacity of 5 to 10 liters. A set of Energtek tanks is designed to provide a driving range of about 100 kilometers or 62 miles.
