Renewable energy deal for Air Liquide


Air Liquide announces that it has acquired a 5% stake in the capital of Fonroche Biogaz, a subsidiary of the Fonroche Group, a key player in the production of renewable energies.

In connection with this acquisition, the two groups plan to pool their skills in order to develop, in partnership, projects involving the purification and upgrading of biogas for the French market.

In a world where energy needs and sources are changing rapidly, the ability to transform organic resources into renewable and totally carbon-free energy is poised to become part of the new energy mix. The energy produced in this way offers the advantage of being easy to store and responsive to the need for sustainable heating and mobility in modern societies.

Founded in 2008, Fonroche, which has expertise in four aspects of renewable energy (photovoltaic, geothermal, biogas, and off-grid lighting systems) and nearly 200 employees, has developed expertise in projects that entail the methanisation of agro-industrial and agricultural wastes. Air Liquide designs and implements biogas purification technologies that give the group world leadership in this area, with more than 10 years of experience.
