FordonsGas, an Air Liquide company, recently opened its 5th liquefied biomethane (LBG) station in Sweden, the first in Östergötland region. FordonsGas now operates around 50 biomethane stations in the country and is committed to further developing this infrastructure and making liquified biomethane available for heavy-duty vehicles in Sweden.
Liquefied biomethane is used to power larger engines for long distances, such as for trucks or ships. Air Liquide is Sweden’s only producer of liquified biomethane with its facility in Lidköping.
FordonsGas is committed to developing a strong infrastructure for liquified biomethane with this 5th station to address the road transportation market. This station is built and operated by FordonsGas with the support of the ‘GREAT’ EU program.
Biomethane is a completely renewable fuel that is produced from biomass (organic waste) and can replace natural gas from fossil origin. Air Liquide is a committed stakeholder across the full span of the biomethane value chain for a sustainable transportation, from purification to production and to the final client.
EU’s GREAT (GREen regions with Alternative fuels for Transport) Project
The EU funded (CEF) GREAT project will make the TEN-T Scandinavian-Mediterranean Corridor between Hamburg and Oslo/Stockholm one of the first to meet the EU’s directive for alternative fuels. The project will contribute to the decarbonisation of the transport sector, and therefore has the potential to make the corridor an EU best-practice example on how to meet environmental and climate challenges. The project’s goals include installation of 3 CNG/LNG stations in Sweden for heavy trucks.
