Save up to 40% on your fuel costs compared to diesel.
Bio-CNG (Biogas) is a 100% clean fuel made from waste and is, therefore, a sustainable alternative for fossil natural gas. Driving on Bio-CNG is not only beneficial for reducing CO2 emissions, but it also saves you on your fuel costs.
Find out what possibilities and advantages there are for you!
Biogas is the sustainable variant of CNG. The source is sewage treatment, waste processing and organic waste. By driving on Biogas you contribute to a cleaner planet. Good for the environment and for you. Don't you want that too?
CHEAPER AND QUIETER
The clean fuel Biogas is cheaper than traditional fuels. You can travel up to 500 km on Bio-CNG for just €25. With petrol, you will have to pay €52 for this distance and with diesel, you pay €33 (figures based on a VW Polo, 2019). Compared to petrol, Biogas saves more than 40% on fuel costs.
Another additional advantage of Bio-CNG is that trucks that run on this fuel are 50% quieter, which means you can load and unload outside of time windows. In addition, trucks do not have to pay road tax (maut) in Germany, which can save transporters a lot of money.
90% LESS CO2 EMISSIONS
OG exclusively sells 100% Bio-CNG at all its filling stations. Because Bio-CNG from OG is obtained biologically, it is a very sustainable energy source. When you drive on Bio-CNG, there is virtually no CO2, nitrogen, particulates or NOx released. Another advantage of driving on Biogas is that the gas is supplied through the gas network. This means that no trucks have to drive to deliver the gas to the filling stations. This is safer and also more environmentally friendly!
BIO-CNG PRODUCTION LOCATION
In the process of water purification, sludge is the residual product. Biogas is released from sludge. OG upgrades this to the right quality and then injects it into the gas network. OG is in the process of building a third biogas production location in the Netherlands.
YOUR WASTE, OUR FUEL
Did you know that your waste is used to make Bio-CNG? This can be done via sewage treatment, waste processing, and organic waste. OG has 3 locations in the Netherlands where Bio-CNG is produced. This will further be expanded in the coming years. There is so much (organic) waste in the Netherlands that 1.4 billion cubic meters of Biogas can be produced. Every year, 1.3 million passenger cars can drive around on this (an average of 14,000 km). That means a reduction of around 16.5 million tonnes (Mt) of CO2 emissions. And this is only based on of Bio-CNG.
A car running on Bio-CNG does not drive any differently. Driving a Bio-CNG vehicle is comparable to driving a petrol vehicle. However, a Bio-CNG vehicle is quieter than a petrol vehicle. To run on Biogas, the car must be fitted with a CNG tank. It is also possible to have your current petrol car converted to a Bio-CNG installation. The average range of a car running on Biogas is between 300 and over 500 km.
For delivery vans, there are sufficient models available both ex-factory and occasionally. Biogas is also highly suitable for waste collection and transport trips of up to 600 kilometers. Driving on Bio-CNG is suitable for everyone.
BIO-CNG REFILLING LOCATIONS
In the Netherlands, there are currently more than 180 Bio-CNG filling stations. OG is the market leader in this field and our filling stations are spread all across the country and around large cities. View all refilled stations in the Netherlands here.
It is possible to fill up with CNG in many European countries. There are currently around 4,410 CNG stations in Europe. Italy is the European’s largest supplier with 1508 CNG stations. Runner-up is Germany, with 803 CNG stations, where OG is the market leader with more than 125 stations. There are 224 CNG stations in Czech Republic and 211 in Sweden. OG currently owns five filling stations in Sweden, and two filling stations with Bio-CNG and fast chargers on the island of Öland. OG is also planning to open stations in Belgium and Italy. Check out OG’s filling stations abroad here. For an overview of all filling stations abroad, visit the gibgas or ngva website.
CNG en CNG+
CNG stands for Compressed Natural Gas and is natural gas under pressure. CNG produced from the Dutch natural gas network contains 78% methane. CNG+ is made by compressing and heating up LNG.
CNG+ made from LNG contains around 95% methane. This means that up to 20% more kilometers can be driven on this fuel (CNG+) than on CNG from the Dutch natural gas network. In collaboration with DCB Energy, OG has CNG+ locations in Den Hoorn, Europoort Rotterdam, Venlo and Borne. CNG+ will soon also be available at Schiphol Airport.
