2022 starts with good news for consumers of BioCNG: Dutch provider OrangeGas, with over 200 stations in Germany, Sweden and the Netherlands, now produces 100% climate-neutral BioCNG, produced from agricultural residues and manure.
At the moment, this makes BioCNG the only propulsion that can achieve climate-neutral mobility for cars and vans as well as buses and trucks, therefore benefitting the private sector as well as commercial use. Especially shipping companies and companies with transport tasks can reduce their CO2 footprint.
Due to the new purchasing conditions, OrangeGas can offer BioCNG from 1 to 31 January 2022 at an even lower price than before. In the promotion month of January, the price for both gas qualities will drop to one euro per kilogram (previously: €1.169/kg for quality H and €1.049/kg for quality L).
The cost-effectiveness comparison in the sector of private automobiles is easily won by BioCNG since years already. Compared with natural gas, petrol would have to cost only 65 cents per litre and diesel would have to cost 75 cents per litre maximum – a long way from current prices throughout Europe. But at mixed gas stations the obvious price difference cannot be seen so easily. Since a kilogram of CNG contains more energy than a litre of petrol or diesel, the prices quoted at the filling station cannot be directly compared.
With its lower price for BioCNG throughout January, OrangeGas promotes refuelling at half-price compared to diesel, compared to petrol natural gas comes in at even 2/3 the price.
This price difference also aims at the transition to green fuels for the heavy duty sector in transport. With regenerative BioCNG being available throughout Europe now, the transport sector could reduce GHG emissions by 45% to 55% - without wasting time waiting for yet to be developed and implemented technologies.
And it pays off: Since the economy is slowly recovering from the first waves of the corona pandemic, the high demand in oil widens the price gap between fossil fuels and regenerative alternatives. Therefore, a conversion of the vehicle fleet is already worthwhile today, simply because of the fuel costs saved. The fact that there are no HGV tolls in some EU countries is now more of a bonus and accelerates the amortisation of the investment for the conversion of the drive system in the fleet even stronger.
