Identification

This sustainable solution offers several types of gas for vehicles: compressed natural gas (CNG), liquefied natural gas (LNG), and liquid nitrogen (LN2).

Bio-LNG and Bio-CNG are the alternatives to conventional fuel used to provide a response to the challenges of clean transportation. Refueling stations in Europe works as distribution centers and render these alternatives usable for the public. The production of biomethane also occurs internally. It allows control over the entire clean mobility chain starting from the production of biomethane and ending with its usage through the supply of biomethane for road transportation. The final result comes down to a reduction of greenhouse gases, improvement of air quality in cities, and reduction of dependence on oil-based fuels. It also contributes to development of biomethane sector which results in additional revenues for farmers and local employment.
