According to Sauter, biomethane from Verbio is offered at the same price as fossil natural gas. “This practically makes driving buses and cars a way of actively contributing to climate change mitigation. And local authorities can significantly reduce their carbon footprint in the transport sector,” he added.
Currently, there are around 900 CNG stations in Germany. Of the 100 sites which have been converted to 100% biomethane, 82 are already supplied with verbiogas. By 2015, the company intends to quadruple its production capacity from currently 500 GWh (gigawatt hours) to 2,000 GWh – and hence enable the existing network of natural gas refueling stations in Germany to switch entirely to verbiogas.
