Decarbonising Ireland’s transport sector

BioCNG is a renewable form of natural gas made from organic waste. It’s produced by breaking down things like food waste and agricultural leftovers in a process called anaerobic digestion. The resulting biogas is purified to remove impurities and increase its energy content, creating bioCNG.

BioCNG is a great option for companies to use in their transport fleet as it emits up to 90% less carbon emissions than alternative heavy fuels.

A greener, more efficient alternative for commercial trucks and fleets.

Benefits of BioCNG

BioCNG is being used to decarbonize the transport sector by substituting fossil fuels with a cleaner and renewable energy source.

Benefits include:

Lower emissions: BioCNG produces fewer harmful gases compared to traditional fuels. This means cleaner air and less pollution.

Renewable energy: BioCNG is made from organic waste, which is a renewable resource. It helps reduce reliance on fossil fuels that will eventually run out.

Waste management: BioCNG production uses organic waste materials that would otherwise go to landfills. It helps manage waste more efficiently and reduces greenhouse gas emissions.

Better air quality: By using BioCNG, Ireland can improve air quality, especially in cities where vehicle emissions are a major problem.

Economic opportunities: The development of BioCNG creates new jobs and stimulates investment in renewable energy and waste management infrastructure.

“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.”
