Uniper unit secures bio-LNG for German filling stations

Liqvis, a subsidiary of German energy company Uniper, has signed a deal for bio-LNG supplies from EnviTec Biogas for sale at its filling stations in Germany.

EnviTec's bio-methane plant in Gustrow will be able to produce bio-LNG in autumn 2022, and supplies to Liqvis will begin in the third quarter of that year, EnviTec said on June 7. Liqvis has been operating LNG filling stations since 2017, providing fuel for heavy goods vehicles.

"As supplies of bio-LNG have been limited in the past, it’s likely that we will not be able to meet customer demand in full initially," Liqvis managing director Sebastian Groblinghoff said. "However, we are increasing the proportion of bio-LNG in our portfolio as part of a continuous process that will ensure we can offer an attractive bio-LNG product to all of our customers."
