Biomethane Liquefied Natural Gas (BioLNG) has the potential to provide economic and environmental benefits for truck owners and operators. The energy density of BioLNG means that trucks can travel longer distances, better suiting the needs of transport operators now, and in the future. Due to the use of industrial organic waste as a resource, the CO2 emissions will be much lower than the CO2 emissions of traditional fuels. BioLNG is essential in achieving the long-term aim of further decarbonisation for 2030. BioLNG virtually eliminates sulphur and offers a reduction in NOx and particulate matter. It can help to reduce well-to-wheel greenhouse gas emissions.
Lowering Carbon Emissions in European Road Transport
BioLNG EuroNet is a project bringing together major industry players in the market:
Shell, Scania, Scania Financial Services, IVECO, IVECO Capital, DISA and Nordsol. BioLNG EuroNet is designed to facilitate the mass scale adoption of LNG as a road fuel in Europe and help the EU meet its 2050 goal of a 60% reduction in CO2 emissions.
Major European Players
BioLNG EuroNet will help with decarbonising heavy duty road transport across Europe by developing a European Network for LNG covering the key Commercial Road Transport routes from southern Spain to eastern Poland and will use this network to demonstrate the commercial scale deployment of BioLNG produced from waste and residues.
