Flogas introduces Bio-LNG offering
Flogas Britain, major suppliers of both LPG (liquefied petroleum gas) and LNG (liquefied natural gas), announced the latest addition to their stock. Company now added Bio-LNG, existing as the UK’s inaugural Bio-LNG energy solution, catering for off-grid commercial, transportation and industrial operations.
Already on offer, Bio-LNG is most suitable for companies who are conducting energy intensive activities. It is particularly useful for those in the industrial, manufacturing, or transport industries. Bio-LNG is scientifically proven to be more environmentally friendly than any alternative off-grid fossil fuel. So, for those companies who choose to switch to Bio-LNG, you can expect to reduce your carbon emissions by around 80 per cent.
David Taylor, Head of Corporate Affairs and Innovation said: “Adding Bio-LNG to our off-grid energy supply is a real step-change for the business and shows just how serious we are about building a lower carbon future for the UK. Whilst this renewable biogas is already in its infancy across the transport industry, we’re the very first to bring it to off-grid commercial and industrial companies – and we’re delighted to be leading the way.
We already supply tens of thousands of tonnes of conventional LNG each year for industrial use, but as the UK moves towards a commitment to cut emissions to ‘Net Zero’ by 2050, Bio-LNG is perfectly placed to fuel industry. Not only does it provide a reliable, powerful and abundant fuel source, it will radically improve a company’s carbon footprint too. This is a major draw, as it helps businesses meet strict government carbon and pollutant reduction targets.”
Bio-LNG is similar to LNG, with the same chemical makeup. However, it is more sustainable, being created during the AD (anaerobic digestion) process. The AD process is the breakdown of matter, including animal waste, food, and sewage, into methane-rich biogas. The gas which is produced, not only contains fewer damaging pollutants, it is also lighter in carbon emissions.
David Taylor goes on to mention: “The good news is, businesses already running their operations using LNG can switch to Bio-LNG instantly. By using certified Bio-LNG on a mass balance basis, there’s no need for set up changes or costly downtime, and businesses can enjoy immediate carbon savings. Green gas is injected into the grid as biomethane – sourced mainly from Anaerobic Digestion plants – with each unit displacing the equivalent amount of conventional gas. We then provide customers with green gas certificates, which track the biomethane through the supply chain, providing certainty from production to end use.”
