Air Liquide today inaugurated its third clean multi-energy station devoted to road transportation, in Duttlenheim, France. With this new station, Air Liquide is contributing to the development of cleaner transportation solutions.
Just like the two stations opened earlier this year, this new multi-energy station, which is devoted to road freight, can refuel vehicles with compressed natural gas (CNG) or liquefied natural gas (LNG), produced in part from biomethane, which is a clean, renewable energy. Air Liquide designs the stations, operates the infrastructure, and distributes the fuel.
Trucks with urban and interurban delivery routes can run on CNG and LNG, which have several major advantages. Firstly, they are clean energies that help to reduce particulate and CO2 emissions, particularly when the CNG and LNG are made from biomethane. They are also more economical energies, with a cost per kilometer that can be lower than diesel.
Air Liquide and Auchan Retail France jointly operate the station and, just like the Lesquin station, which opened on October 7, it is open to every company in the region. This opening is part of Air Liquide's strategy to promote clean transportation, and adds to the 48 CNG stations already operated by FordonsGas, a 100%-owned subsidiary of the group.
