Biomethane will also play a role in decarbonising the transport sector, Eurogas and NGVA Europe say

According to Eurogas and NGVA Europe, the united and strong voice in Europe for the NGV industry, the decarbonisation of the transport sector will happen through the increasing role of gaseous fuels, including biomethane (bioCNG/bioLNG) as sustainable and immediately available fuels with lower greenhouse gas (GHG) footprints.

“We firmly believe that the upcoming Regulation on CO2 standards for Heavy-Duty Vehicles (HDVs) will play a key role in addressing the climate performance of the new vehicle fleet and must ensure a level playing field among all viable technologies able to contribute to the urgent decarbonisation of the road transport sector,” read the press statement.

Accounting for the actual environmental footprint of the fuels is critical and requires an enabling regulatory framework supporting further market development. A rational approach to vehicle CO2 regulations is therefore critical to creating the market conditions for expanding the deployment of bioCNG/bioLNG using established (and still growing) refuelling infrastructure.
