Naturgy & Aquaservice sign Spain’s first bio-CNG supply agreement
Naturgy and Aquaservice reached an agreement for the energy company to supply biomethane to the water distributor’s last-mile delivery fleet. In this way, Aquaservice will become the first company to use this renewable energy in its vehicles throughout the Spanish territory. Both companies are also collaborating to promote sustainable electric and green hydrogen mobility in Aquaservice’s last-mile fleet in Spain.
The biomethane will come from the production facilities that Naturgy has at the Elena landfill, in Cerdanyola del Vallès (Barcelona), the first plant to inject renewable gas produced from waste into the Spanish gas network. The contract provides for the supply of a maximum 2GW / year of biomethane. This fuel substitution will contribute to a reduction in emissions of up to 350 t CO2/year, which is equivalent to removing 53,000 vehicles from the circulation of a city for one day.
“With this first commercialization of biomethane for vehicles, we once again show our commitment to sustainability and to our customers, who are increasingly demanding more sustainable and environmentally friendly products,” said Óscar Arrazola, Naturgy Mobility Delegate in the Central South area.
For his part, Rafael Vaño, Aquaservice’s Purchasing and Fleet Manager, commented: “The commitment to the circular economy and sustainable mobility have been key for Aquaservice to become the first carbon neutral company in the sector. Now, and thanks to Naturgy and its supply of biomethane, we are taking a further step in reducing emissions in all our activity, promoting sustainable last-mile distribution in Spanish cities.”
