The eco-fuel with a high potential

Air pollution and greenhouse gas emissions are global problems which can be solved through the use of new, sustainable technologies to make freight shipment more ecologically compatible. With organic LNG (Liquefied Natural Gas), we can now optimally exploit the ecological advantages of methane gas, the environmentally safest fuel for internal combustion engines:

Improved air quality by means of virtually zero emissions
The emission balance and the resultant CO2 footprint for the production of LNG is often underestimated. That’s because it is possible to actually achieve a virtually CO2-neutral fuel only by means of ecological production.
Positive influence on global warming by the considerable reduction of CO2 emissions. Thus, a truck fuelled with LNG of fossil origin releases approx. 15% less CO2 than a truck with a comparable diesel engine. And when using bio LNG, CO2 emissions can be reduced by up to 95%.
Enormous noise reduction for the delivery of goods in urban centers and at night

The fermentation of livestock waste and liquid waste in the Biogas Wipptal plant yields biogas. In a purification process, the biogas is then separated into bio methane (CH4) and carbon dioxide (CO2). In a subsequent step, the bio-methane is then liquefied at a temperature of -163 °C. This is done in a 3-stage compressor, thus obviating the need for additional refrigerant.

The resultant bio LNG is stored in special cryogenic storage tanks for later use in heavy truck transportation.

Climate change demands that we go new ways economically to attain sustainable operating methods and conform to climate policies.

With regards to economic activities in mountainous areas, this means closing the fertilizer management cycle. The processing of agricultural wastes to produce sustainable fertilizer products as Biogas Wipptal is doing it represents a major contribution. The resultant biogas – a sustainable, renewable source of raw materials – can also be efficiently used (with new technologies in the transportation sector and especially the area of heavy freight) as a sustainable fuel, either as liquefied biogas (LNG) or as “green” hydrogen.

The enables emissions of pollutants and CO2 to be minimized, and fulfills all the requirements of climate protection. CO2 from biogas is climate-neutral since it is derived from renewable sources and not from fossil fuels.fossili.“
