Biomethane in transportation
The biomethane that is upgraded by Air Liquide is used as fuel and referred to as
Bio-Natural Gas for Vehicles (Bio-NGV). This Bio-NGV takes two forms:
- CNG (Compressed Natural Gas). This fuel supplies stations for captive light vehicle fleets, cars, semi-trucks, vans, buses.
- LNG (Liquefied Natural Gas). Easily and safely transportable, this fuel supplies stations for semi-trucks, touring buses.
The biomethane is also used in the production of hydrogen (decarbonized hydrogen for use in hydrogen-powered vehicles, in Air Liquide commitment for Blue Hydrogen).
Present across the whole biogas value chain
Air Liquide is present at every step of the biomethane value chain and supports the circular economy: from waste to mobility. Indeed, Air Liquide works with various partners to convert organic resources into biogas, designs and implements refinement technologies (Medal membrane) to produce biomethane and acquired FordonsGas a swedish distributor of bioNGV for the transport market.
