First 100% renewable-fuelled heavy-duty vehicle hits the road in Portugal


Portuguese gas supplier Dourogás and supply chain management company HAVI has achieved a significant step in the effort to decarbonise the transport sector following the fuelling of a heavy-duty vehicle with 100% renewable compressed natural gas (CNG), supplied to HAVI by Scania.

The partners will also collaborate on the use of renewable biomethane to help avoid 7,600 tonnes of CO2 emissions per year from 2025, when it aims to provide 50% of compressed natural gas from 100% renewable sources.

Foreseeing the completion of around 8,000km fuelled entirely with 100% renewable biomethane, pioneering biogas project Biogasmove will provide the biomethane available at the Dourogás gas station in Loures, Portugal. The project produces the gas from the anaerobic digestion of organic waste.

Speaking about the partnership, Joao Filipe Jesus, General Director of Dourogás GNV, subsidiary of Dourogás Group, said that the partnership marks an important step on the road to achieving the availability of 100% renewable biomethane at all its service stations by 2025.
