Dutch green energy provider PitPoint has officially opened its second Compressed Natural Gas (CNG) refueling station in Belgium. This is the kickoff for a series of five new natural gas filling stations to be opened by PitPoint over the next five months in the Antwerp region. The official opening was done by Bart Tommelein, Vice Minister-President of the Flemish Government, Flemish Minister for Finance, Budget and Energy.
Minister Tommelein encouraged the greening of the road tax system and ensured a continuation of the policy. “The entry of a new player with ambitious plans in the market of natural gas filling stations is proof that there is a future for renewable fuels in Flanders. The air quality in Flanders must continue to improve and opting for cleaner fuels such as natural gas can help. The Flemish Government policy supports this transition. Cleaner air is, after all, important to us, our children and grandchildren. ”
PitPoint director in Belgium, Geert Degroote, adds: “I see a good match in the ambitions of the Minister’s policies and PitPoint’s plans for Belgium.”
Using its experience with renewable natural gas (RNG), PitPoint is striving to achieve 100% clean transport in Belgium and the Netherlands.
