Alluvial diagrams are a type of flow diagram originally developed to represent changes in network structure over time. In allusion to both their visual appearance and their emphasis on flow, alluvial diagrams are named after alluvial fans¹ that are naturally formed by the soil deposited from streaming water.
The infographic shows a representation of the world-wide-trade with natural gas based on the year 2018 according to the BP Statistical Review of World Energy 2018.
The illustration however shows the way Sepuran, a product developed by Evonik, works to filter methane mechanically from natural gas, to help make using gas more efficient and less dirty for the environment.
The story was published in January 2019 as part of a report about natural gas in the science magazine Evonik Elements. In collaboration with Bissinger+. Research, illustration, infographic design and layout by Magnus Wiedenmann.
¹alluvial fans have been found on Mars, a prove for fluvial flows and the past existence of liquid water on the red planet. Credit opening picture: NASA/JPL
