CEO of Gaznat commented: “We are proud to become one of the partners in this cooperation that aims to provide a 100% carbon-neutral gas supply in 2050. It is clear that we can all only benefit from working together.”
The companies have formed active working groups to address the following:
- Biomethane and green gas certificates
- Gas (CNG and LNG) as fuel for road and maritime transport
The gas companies will exchange and discuss best practices and general business cases with regard to gas as fuel for transport. A smarter and harmonised use of CNG and LNG technologies across Europe is required in order to release its green potential.
