Shell on May 28, launched the first joint LNG (liquefied natural gas) and Dīzeļdevgielas station in the truck, Herstal, near the town of Liège in Belgium!
The station is located close to the three countries exit E313, one of the most widely used routes in international transport. This station is the largest in Europe and every day can serve up to 150 trucks.
In the near future, Shell is planning to discover a number of new LNG stations in Europe that will provide stable Shell LNG coverage in strategically important locations!
Shell first Belgian LNG station for trucks
The growing demand for energy and the growing need to reduce the amount of gas emissions in the transport sector is being sought as a means of simultaneously making transport more efficient and environmentally friendly. Logistics companies are increasingly opting for LNG fuel as it is not only environmentally friendly (70% less pollution – less sulphur, soot particles and oxides of nitrogen, as well as reducing noise pollution and CO2 emissions by 15%), but is financially more profitable i.e. 30% Compared to the usual diesel fuel.
So what is this liquefied natural gas (LNG)?
It is a clear, colourless and non-toxic fluid formed when natural gas is cooled to-162 ° C. In the cooling process, the volume of gas decreases 600 times, making it easier and safer to store and transported.
Liquefied natural gas (LNG) plays an important role in the transport sector – it is our future!
