Advantages of BioCNG/BioLNG for freight forwarders

Anyone who can drive a truck, can drive biomethane! The climate-friendly energy carrier is one of the key technologies for already defossilizing the transport sector and sustainably reducing greenhouse gas emissions.

Today, heavy-duty road transport in Germany is responsible for just under a quarter of transport-related CO2 emissions. The defossilization of transport in general and heavy-duty transport in particular is an important approach to achieving the German government's climate target - i.e. reducing German greenhouse gas emissions by 55 percent by 2030 compared with 1990.

Bio-LNG/Bio-CNG - same range, less noise, lower consumption

The advantages of biomethane as a fuel1:

  • up to 80 percent less CO2 compared to conventional diesel engines
  • approximately 99 percent less particulate matter
  • almost complete reduction in emissions of sulfur and nitrogen oxides
  • approximately 50 percent less noise than a comparable diesel engine
  • Toll exemption for LNG/Bio-LNG driven trucks until 20232
  • Comparable range to conventional diesel between 1.000 - 1.900 KM3
  • 15 % lower fuel consumption
  • Support through energy tax reduction
  • Continuous expansion of refueling infrastructure of around 97 by end of 2021.4
