Continuing to promote natural gas as an alternative for mobility across Europe, Gas Natural Fenosa, through its subsidiary Gas Natural Europe has opened its second public natural gas fueling station in France. This station, located in Poitiers, offers both liquefied natural gas (LNG) and compressed natural gas (CNG). It is the first in the Nouvelle-Aquitaine region and has an 80 m3 tank and capacity to supply all sorts of vehicles: lorries, buses, tractors, light or utility vehicles.
The multinational energy company opened its first LNG and CNG filling station in France two years ago, in Castets (near Bayonne), which it claims is currently the facility that supplies the largest volume of natural gas out of all those that exist in the country. These two stations in France, as well as those already operated by the company in Spain, allow international freight traffic along the Atlantic Corridor to exclusively run on natural gas.
Gas Natural Europe operates in Germany, Belgium, France, Luxembourg and the Netherlands. Over the coming months, the company plans to open three new public stations in Bordeaux, Compiègne (north of Paris) and Dunkirk in order to cover supply at these key points on the French road network.
Gas Natural Fenosa has been offering sustainable mobility solutions for over 20 years. As an automotive fuel, natural gas reduces the emission of all the main pollutants that affect human health: it reduces the emission of nitrous oxides (NOx) by 80%; it eliminates over 95% of particulate matter (PM) emissions; it emits no SOx; and it contains no lead or traces of heavy metals.
Furthermore, it is the fossil fuel that emits the least CO2, the main greenhouse gas.
