Air Liquide and Shell have signed an agreement giving heavy-duty trucks with the Shell card access to Air Liquide’s network of multi-energy stations in France. This means they will be able to refuel in particular with biomethane.
Thanks to this agreement, trucks with the Shell card crossing France will be able to refuel at Air Liquide’s filling stations, especially those located along the French north-south motorway network, which is a very important route for European logistics companies.
These stations distribute a variety of fuels for road transport companies, including renewable natural gas. Heavy trucks will be able to refuel 24/7 with CNG, LNG, and in particular bio-CNG and bio-LNG.
Air Liquide operates all along the biomethane value chain, with a circular economy approach, from the production and purification of biogas in the plants it operates, to its injection into natural gas grids, and its use, for example, as biofuel for road transport fleets. The biomethane injected into the natural gas grid is also used to service stations that distribute bio-CNG and bio-LNG.
Air Liquide now has more than 80 stations distributing biomethane around Europe, including 16 in France.
