Air Liquide has inaugurated a new clean energy station in Servon, Ile-de-France, in partnership with Carrefour.
This station, designed and installed by Air Liquide, will provide fuel on bio natural gas for transport vehicles (bio-NGV).
The Servon station is the first of eight multi-clean energy stations that Air Liquide will roll out in France throughout 2017. They will join the six multi-energy stations that have already opened in France and in the UK.
Designed mainly for the transport of goods, these stations supply compressed and liquefied bio-NGV, as well as the Air Liquide’s liquid nitrogen (N2) solution blueeze™ for trucks equipped with a cryogenic refrigerating unit, instead of diesel. The station that just opened in Servon, like all of Air Liquide’s multi-energy stations, can fuel 80 trucks a day.
Through its biogas purification units in Europe, the group is present in the production of biomethane for natural gas networks and bio-NGV for transport fleets. Biomethane injected into the natural gas network can be used to supply stations that distribute bio-NGV. Bio-NGV is a form of clean and renewable energy that reduces CO2 emissions by 90% and noise by up to 50% compared with diesel fuel.
At this time, Air Liquide operates more than 60 bio-NGV stations in Europe, principally supplied by its biogas purification units in the UK, France, and Sweden.
Air Liquide and Oman Oil Refineries and Petroleum Industries Company (Orpic), Oman’s national refining company, has signed a long-term agreement for the supply of nitrogen (N2) to the Liwa Plastics Industries Complex (LPIC).
