March 21, 2021. The Vice President and Minister of Climate, Energy and Mobility in Wallonia, Philippe Henry, officially inaugurated the first bioCNG filling station, a more environmentally friendly alternative to traditional fuels.
After the installation of the first renewable gas facility in Belgium at the end of 2019, Total continues the operational implementation of alternative fuel solutions with the opening of the Jambes refueling station. “It is by giving access to all those who have made the decision to contribute to the energy transition by opting for CNG vehicles, as a company or as an individual, that we will achieve the climate objectives set,” underlines Stefaan De Ganck, Director of Mobility and New Energies of Total. “In fact, some 23,000 private and professional vehicles already run on natural gas in Belgium and we want to promote this growth curve with increasingly more environmentally friendly solutions with our bioCNG.”
For his part, Minister Henry specifies: “To meet Wallonia’s energy and climate transition goals, it is important to diversify green supply sources in the transport sector. In this context, bioCNG has a legitimate place and should help reduce greenhouse gas emissions and air pollution”.
