Evonik of Essen, Germany, and Den Haag, Netherlands-based Shell are making inroads into defossilizing heavy duty road transport with Bio-LNG.

Shell is supplying 100 tons of Bio-LNG made from agricultural waste to Evonik. It is equivalent to the average fuel consumption of three trucks in a year.

Evonik passes on this volume of Bio-LNG from Shell to selected logistics partners.

Evonik is committed to reduce its own emissions by shipping its products environmentally friendly with Bio-LNG-fueled trucks.

With this initiative, both companies want to promote the use of biomethane in heavy-duty transport as a fuel alternative that emits significantly less emissions and is already available today.

Bio-LNG can reduce CO2e emissions by approximately 86 percent compared to diesel.

Shell is scaling up the Bio-LNG supply chain while offering customers progressive emissions reductions.
