Biomethane for business

in Ireland, and the UK

Biomethane, a renewable form of gas, is generated from the breaking down of organic matter such as food waste, animal slurry and energy crops through a process called anaerobic digestion. The fuel has significant potential to transform business and transport over the coming years. It allows companies transition from natural gas to renewable gas while reducing their CO2 emissions.

Bio-CNG Supports Irish Businesses to Decarbonise their Fleets

Biomethane can be purified further and compressed to be used as a renewable fuel for transportation known as Bio-CNG (Bio Compressed Natural Gas).

It can be used in a similar way to traditional compressed natural gas (CNG), made from fossil fuels and utilised in CNG vehicles.

Bio-CNG is a greener, commercially viable and more efficient alternative to traditional fossil fuels for commercial trucks and fleets.

Flogas Enterprise has begun commencement in the construction of a Bio-CNG refuelling station at St Margaret’s in North County Dublin. This station is set to open in April 2024, will mark Ireland’s first public dedicated Bio-CNG facility.

“We are functioning in a time when large energy users have limited hedging options. In a volatile energy market, having a fixed price for the supply of electricity through a CPPA is not only good for the environment, but it is also great for budgeting. This solution was hedged at a price that is reflective of current market price level, but delivers budget certainty and sustainability benefits.”

John Rowland, Operations Director, Wavin Ireland

Not only does the deal provide our business with significant cost benefits through direct access to wholesale energy prices, but we are partnering with a company that has demonstrated a deep understanding and expertise of Ireland’s energy market.”
