LNG and LBG help transport and logistics to meet emission standards
The European Union and the Nordic countries have set a strong agenda for reducing the emissions from transport. This creates the need for enterprises to reduce emissions in their supply chains where a major role is played by transport logistics.
To enable the emission cuts in transport and logistics Gasum is investing in the construction of around 50 gas filling stations for heavy-duty vehicles in Finland, Sweden and Norway by the beginning of the 2020s. The investment will multiply the size of the Nordic heavy-duty vehicle gas filling station network, enabling considerable emission cuts.
Why LNG and LBG?
Liquefied natural gas (LNG) and liquefied biogas (LBG) are a clean and price-stable fuels for tractor units used in heavy-duty road transport.
LNG is a clean fuel that doesn’t emit small particulates and also other emission components are low compared to other road transport fuels. The use of LNG reduces greenhouse gas emissions by up to 20% compared with fossil diesel on life cycle analysis. In addition, the noise emissions produced by LNG powered trucks is lower.
LNG-fuelled trucks can also switch to 100% renewable liquefied biogas (LBG) without any special investments. LBG reduces greenhouse gas emissions by up to 85% compared with fossil fuel.
LNG is available for heavy-duty vehicles with operating ranges of up to 1,200 km. Several vehicle manufacturers such as Iveco, Scania and Volvo Trucks, among others, offer modern LNG-powered trucks.
