Although financial incentives for the purchase and use of this proven and environmentally friendly technology are still lacking in Austria, the interest of shipping companies in LNG is growing. More and more businessmen want to apply more sustainability in their operations. 90% less NO2, 99% less particles and around 20% less CO2 (up to -95% with biomethane) are without doubt the best available and realistic environmental propositions. 20% lower fuel costs, made up of 10% lower fuel consumption compared to diesel equivalent and 10% lower fuel costs, are of course another advantage when calculating efficiency. energetic. A large number of practical applications have already confirmed these values in detail. With a range adapted to the needs of customers with the appropriate LNG vehicle for each application in local and long-distance transport, with a performance equivalent to the usual 460 CV in heavy transport and with a range of up to 1,600 km, that already meets the needs of carriers
LNG is a sustainable option for transport companies, as this alternative fuel emits up to 20% less CO2 than comparable diesel vehicles. If LNG is used as biogas, the proportion can even be reduced by up to 90%," explains Stefan Ziegert, Product Manager Sustainable Transport Solutions at Scania Germany Austria. The balance sheet is also excellent when it comes to reducing carbon dioxide emissions. nitrogen, NOx and particulates "The new gas engines also meet the requirements of the PIEK noise directive, which stipulates a maximum noise level of 72 dB(A) in noise-sensitive areas such as city centers and residential areas.
The drive for the use of Liquefied Natural Gas in Austria is being supported by the production of Biomethane, which drastically reduces emissions, producing enormous environmental benefits, making the supply of LNG at Austrian service stations a practically emission-free activity net. The support of the Government of Austria to the production of Biomethane is motivating companies to open new service stations offering LNG for transport.
