Biofuel can drive increase in gas-powered fleets to 17 million vehicles, says Gasrec10 July 2014

The number of gas-powered vehicles in Europe could reach 17 million by 2020, representing an increase from 0.5% to 5% of all vehicles, according to European fleet figures.

This take-up can be met by using liquefied biomethane as a transport fuel, particularly for heavy commercial vehicles, according to Rob Wood, chief executive of Gasrec.

That's the message he delivered yesterday (9 July 2014), addressing representatives of many leading transport companies at a gas vehicle show in Brussels.

Presenting an 'Industry Innovations' session, Wood made the environmental and commercial case for increased use of liquefied biomethane, highlighting the benefits this can bring to transport pollution.

Wood told the audience that Gasrec is experiencing strong demand for its Bio-LNG (liquefied natural gas) fuel blend as more retail and logistics companies expand their gas-powered fleets. He also revealed plans to roll out a network of Bio-LNG refuelling stations across Europe.

NGV 2014 Brussels is taking place from 7—10 July 204.
