Liquind, EnviTec ink bio-LNG pact

Germany’s Liquind has signed a deal with compatriot EnviTec Biogas to buy bio-LNG from the latter’s plant in Güstrow.

EnviTec has previously revealed it plans to convert the facility in Güstrow to be able to produce bio-LNG as it now only makes biomethane.

Following completion in autumn 2022, Liquind would take bio-LNG at the plant and distribute it to its network of truck filling stations across Germany, according to a joint statement on Monday.

By 2025, Liquind expects all LNG sold at the company’s fueling stations to come from renewable sources

“The bio-LNG from this and additional projects enables our customers to operate their vehicles even more sustainably while benefiting from constant high quality and security of supply,“ Christian Schneider, managing director at Liquind, said.

Olaf von Lehmden, CEO at EnviTec Biogas, said the utilization of bio-LNG has “significant potential” to reduce GHG emissions in the transport sector compared with oil-based fuels.

“In addition, a well-functioning infrastructure is in place for the distribution of bio-LNG, whereas the comprehensive use of electromobility and hydrogen alternatives requires extensive development,” he said.

“Until these alternatives are ready for use, precious time is being wasted. The established CNG and LNG fuel station infrastructure can and must provide a remedy,” he said.
