LIQUIND 24/7 and EnviTec Biogas sign supply agreement for bio-LNG
Joint press release
Starting in autumn 2022 LIQUIND 24/7 will obtain bio-LNG from a new EnviTec Biogas AG liquefaction plant in Güstrow and distribute the renewable fuel to customers through its fuelling stations in Germany.
Lohne/Berlin, 07. June 2021: Liquind 24/7 and EnviTec Biogas have signed a contract for the sale of bio-LNG. The bio-LNG will be produced in a new liquefaction plant, which will be constructed by EnviTec in Güstrow in Mecklenburg-Western Pomerania, Germany. LIQUIND is in charge of organizing the transport and the distribution of bio-LNG to heavy-duty customers at its truck fuelling stations.
EnviTec is already operating a biogas production and upgrading plant at its Güstrow site which will use upgraded biomethane for the liquefaction starting in autumn 2022. Olaf von Lehmden, CEO at EnviTec Biogas, is delighted about the cooperation agreement: „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 fuel 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.“
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 fuelling 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. Christian Schneider, Managing Director at LIQUIND, comments: „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.“
