Flogas, a commercial and industrial energy supplier and supplier of renewable biomethane to transport in Ireland, has announced the official opening of the Republic of Ireland's first ever dedicated Bio-CNG refuelling self-service station.
The organisation said this new self-service station will support large companies who want to make the switch to Bio-CNG and reduce their Scope 3 emissions.
Located at FoodCentral in St Margarets North Co. Dublin, this 2,900 square metre site can refuel up to 50 HGVs per day from one dual-sided high-speed dispenser.
When the station is at full utilisation, it will cut over 9,000 tonnes of C02 emissions per annum compared to diesel fuelled HGVs.
The Irish government recently published its new National Biomethane Strategy to support the delivery of up to 5.7 Tera Wat Hour (TWh) of indigenously produced biomethane by 2030.
Bio-CNG will support the decarbonisation of Ireland’s road haulage sector, responsible for 20.7% of the total road transport emissions in Ireland, according to Flogas.
The renewable fuel for the station will come from Irish and European anaerobic digestion (AD) plants.
Flogas is the only energy supplier in Ireland approved under the Renewable Fuels Assurance Scheme for the supply of Bio-CNG.
The Renewable Gas Certification scheme ensures transparency and accountability, as the biomethane will be tracked in the supply chain.
Speaking at the official opening, Minister of State at the Department of Environment, Climate and Communications Ossian Smyth TD, said: “Renewable fuels are an important transition measure for transport decarbonisation until we realise the shift to zero emission solutions. The supply of biomethane for transport is incentivised under the Renewable Transport Fuel Obligation Scheme and the recently published Biomethane Strategy recognises that biomethane can be used as an alternative in heavy goods transport. Flogas’s Bio-CNG refuelling station can play a role in supporting businesses who choose to reduce their carbon emissions using Bio-CNG.”
“As we stand at the forefront of Ireland's sustainable energy revolution, Flogas is proud to unveil the Republic of Ireland’s first ever dedicated Bio-CNG refuelling self-service station,” said John Rooney, managing director at Flogas.
“Bio-CNG represents not just a fuel, but a promise—a promise of a greener, more efficient future for commercial transportation. Bio-CNG for heavy goods vehicles can cut carbon emissions by up to 90% and can reduce the lifetime vehicle costs compared to diesel vehicles, which is in line with DCC’s strategy – Cleaner Energy in Your Power. We would encourage any business thinking of making the switch to Bio-CNG to get in touch with our dedicated team of energy experts at Flogas,” he added.
