Air Liquide inaugurated a clean energy station in Servon, Ile-de-France, in partnership with Carrefour. Designed and installed by Air Liquide, the new facility will provide renewable natural gas, among other fuels, for vehicles. Air Liquide is partnering with major retailers and transport specialists to support the development of clean fuel alternatives.
The Servon station is the first of eight multi-clean energy stations that Air Liquide will roll out in France throughout 2017. They will join the six stations that have already opened in France and in the United Kingdom.
Designed mainly for the transport of goods, these stations supply compressed and liquefied biomethane, as well as the Air Liquide’s liquid nitrogen solution blueeze™ for trucks equipped with a cryogenic refrigerating unit, instead of diesel. The station that just opened in Servon, like all of Air Liquide’s multi-energy stations, can fuel 80 trucks a day.
Through its biogas purification units in Europe, the group is present in the production of biomethane for natural gas networks and transport fleets. Biomethane injected into the natural gas network can be used to supply stations that distribute CNG and LNG. At this time, Air Liquide operates more than 60 biomethane stations in Europe, principally supplied by its biogas purification units in the UK, France, and Sweden.
