Air Liquide inaugurates new biomethane production unit


Air Liquide has inaugurated a biomethane production unit and a multi-energy distribution station near Bordeaux, France.

The new biomethane production unit, located in Cestas, enables the production of biogas from organic matter of farm origin and its purification into biomethane. This energy injected into the natural gas grid supplies a new multi-energy station that distributes, in particular, bio-NGV (Natural Gas for Vehicles). This clean non-fossil fuel reduces fine particulates emissions by 85%, CO2 emissions by 90%, and noise pollution by up to 50%.

This unit, coupled with a multi-energy distribution station, illustrates the strong growth of the new energy transition markets, notably in France. This example of a circular economy that revolves around the biogas recovery chain also demonstrates Air Liquide’s commitment to the deployment of clean transportation solutions in order to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and improve air quality.
