Transporters, companies and individuals in the Netherlands consume more and more Biogas. More and more green gas is available in the country and the number of cars that can run on bioCNG will continue to grow in the coming years, as will the number of filling stations.
In the Netherlands, green gas (bio-CNG) and bio-LNG are made from waste streams (biomass) such as sewage sludge, landfill gas (gas from waste or rubbish landfilled ), manure and organic waste. In the near future, this non-fossil methane will also be produced from solar and wind energy (Power2Gas).
Since 2014, more than half of CNG service stations have supplied 100% green gas. Additionally, any fleet owner can purchase green gas certificates on the market. Each certificate represents real green gas produced elsewhere in the Netherlands and this renewable gas in road transport is certified and administered by law by the Ministry of Economy.
BioCNG and CNG have an energy tax of 0.16 euros per kg, in the Netherlands, and no excise duty. The total tax on CNG and green gas is much lower than that of gasoline and diesel, so CNG and green gas are cheap fuels. The BPM (Tax on Passenger Cars and Motor Vehicles at the time of purchase) and the additional tax benefit are the same as for gasoline cars, but lower than for diesel vehicles. CNG passenger vehicles are subject to the motor vehicle tax (MRB) according to the G3 rate.
