Air Liquide, Asda in UK biomethane deal

France’s industrial gas company Air Liquide will install and operate six biomethane truck distribution stations in the UK for supermarket retailer Asda.

ASDA plans to launch more than 300 new biogas trucks in 2021 to reduce the environmental footprint of its transport activities.

To remind, the retailer recently took delivery of 202 Volvo FH LNG tractor units.

To support Asda, Air Liquide said it would install and operate biomethane stations on six of the retailer’s 15 sites. These stations will refuel both Asda trucks and those of some partners.

Additionally, the new stations, which will be operational by the first quarter of 2021, will boost Air Liquide’s network to 20 filling stations in the UK.

These stations are dedicated to refilling fleets of trucks and buses. At the end of 2019, Air Liquide acquired Gas Bus Alliance, which added seven biomethane filling stations for buses to its network in the country.

Furthermore, the Group will also install its tenth biomethane production plant in the UK by the summer of 2021, near Nottingham, with a production capacity of 90 GWh.

Today, Air Liquide’s biomethane production capacity in the UK amounts to 650 GWh per year, which is enough to supply 1,000 trucks, it said.
