Dutch transport firm goes bio-LNG

Dutch hauling company Van Dijk has teamed up with Rolande and Scania to test bio-LNG for trucks as it looks to further slash emissions.

Over the last two years, Van Dijk invested in ten Scania G 410 liquid gas trucks. The aim is to abandon all fossil fuels in the entire fleet, according to a Scania statement.

Van Dijk will convert almost its entire fleet as it looks to be “completely without CO2 emissions,” the company’s director John van Dijk said in the statement.

Sponsored by the EU and in cooperation with Scania Benelux and Dutch LNG supplier Rolande, Van Dijk started out with two trucks in a field trial for bio-LNG.

The trial is a part of a larger project that includes three truck makers and transport companies.

To remind, Rolande announced last year it had joined forces with Scania, Iveco, Volvo, and twelve transport firms to measure the performance of driving on bio-LNG.

Moreover, the trial is part of the BIOLNG4EU project. The European CEF program co-funded the development.

The project includes in total 35 trucks that run on bio-LNG blends, according to Rolande.

The LNG supplier has already developed the first infrastructure for bio-LNG in the Netherlands and Belgium as part of the project, it previously said.
