Liquind 24/7 and EnviTec Biogas have signed an agreement for the sale of bio-LNG, which will be produced at a new liquefaction plant to be constructed by EnviTec in Güstrow, Germany, where the company is already operating a biogas production and upgrading facility. Starting in autumn 2022 LIQUIND will be in charge of obtaining the bio-LNG from EnviTec’s liquefaction plant, and organizing its transport and distribution to heavy-duty customers at its truck fueling stations in Germany.
“Not only are we developing a new field of business, but we are doing pioneering work for the transition to more sustainable transport in Germany. The utilization of bio-LNG has significant potential to reduce GHG emissions in the transport sector compared with oil-based fuels. In addition, a well-functioning infrastructure is in place for the distribution of bio-LNG, whereas the comprehensive use of electromobility and hydrogen alternatives requires extensive development. Until these alternatives are ready for use, precious time is being wasted. The established CNG and LNG station infrastructure can and must provide a remedy. Together with LIQUIND as a partner for the marketing of the fuel at truck stations, we are able to significantly contribute to the decarbonization of heavy-duty traffic,” said Olaf von Lehmden, CEO at EnviTec Biogas.
For LIQUIND, the project is a decisive milestone and part of the company’s future strategy. By 2025 all LNG that are sold at the company’s fueling stations should be derived from renewable sources. LIQUIND has announced that it is aiming to reduce CO2 emissions compared to conventional diesel fuel by up to 100 per cent.
“We are happy about the start of this cooperation with regards to this important matter and underline our commitment to develop a sustainable fuels infrastructure in Germany. The bio-LNG from this and additional projects enables our customers to operate their vehicles even more sustainably while benefiting from constant high quality and security of supply,” commented Christian Schneider, Managing Director at LIQUIND.
