The added advantage with Bio-LNG as fuel is – if there is no Bio-Methane available for whatever reason, the vehicles will keep rolling with conventional LNG just as fine. The danger of immobilized truck fleets for lack of fuel is gone. And if ever there would not be enough bio-LNG, a blend of part bio – part conventional also looks much better than anything else. At least on paper as conventional LNG is just fine but in Europe, we want our subterfuges.
The Hague-based LNG giant Shell is planning to push for further decarbonization of heavy-duty transport in Germany by expanding its LNG station network to 35-40 facilities.
