Dutch green energy provider PitPoint has officially opened the first public CNG/green gas (RNG) filling station in Born, Sittard-Geleen, in the southern part of The Netherlands. The municipality of Sittard-Geleen and postal-parcel company PostNL have been instrumental in pushing this project forward, the latter being the largest fuel purchaser and launching customer.
PostNL has chosen to run a large part of its fleet on green gas. The reason: 75% CO2 reduction compared to the old diesel vehicles and very low emissions of particulates and soot. Born PostNL is gradually replacing all 58 cars of the package depot’s fleet to renewable natural gas (green gas).
The municipality is also committed to a sustainable future and is adopting natural gas fueled vehicles. Green gas is to be regarded as 100% sustainable thereby also increasing the use of renewable energy.
The new PitPoint service station is the seventh CNG / green gas filling station in the province of Limburg. It is open 24 hours a day, 7 days a week for refueling.
