HAM Groups celebrated the delivery of its 100 LNG refuelling station

HAM Group celebrated the delivery of its 100th LNG station in Europe. The company has been involved in one in every four LNG stations built.

What is the project about?

The project involves carrying out a study of feasibility for the creation of France’s first production plant for liquified biomethane (Bio-LNG), to be used in the shipping industry. The project is commissioned by the Métropole Aix-Marseille-Provence to the operator of the household waste treatment plant EveRé. Partners in the project are CMA CGM Group – a world leader in shipping and logistics, Elengy -a subsidiary of Engie, operating liquefied natural gas (LNG) terminals at Fos-sur-Mer and TotalEnergies – a global multi-energy company that produces and supplies energy.

The goal is to produce biomethane by converting biodegradable household waste from the Marseille region and use it as Bio-LNG in shipping. This will allow the decarbonization of shipping services departing from the Grand Port Maritime in Marseille.

Bio-LNG as part of the local circular economy of Marseille

In this way the project creates a local circular economic system, by using local household waste, reduces local air pollution and supports the energy transition in the shipping industry. The project fits particularly well in the local economy, due to the existing infrastructure at theport – EveRé’s waste methanization unit, Elengy’s LNG terminals – which will be used for storage and delivery of the Bio-LNG. Additionally, it fits within the objectives of the French national drive to promote Bio-LNG, as established in France’s Mobility Orientation Law.
