Greening road transport - LNG refuelling infrastructure network deployment


Expanding the network of LNG (liquefied natural gas) stations on the highways connecting the UK, France, Belgium, the Netherlands, Luxembourg and Germany reduced the length of cargo travel and encouraged more transport companies switch to environmentally friendlier LNG use, thus cutting down on overall carbon emissions.

This project aimed to contribute to this objective by constructing a pilot public refuelling station in Veurne, Belgium (near the French border) and use the lessons learnt for the future construction of other stations in Belgium and France.

The project also addressed safety and security standards for LNG, which will serve as reference for developing national standards and safety legislation. The project findings were widely shared with public authorities, transport companies, fuel station and fuel card operators and fire brigades.

The Action was successfully completed, The station was built and inaugurated on 16 October 2014.

The action is closed.
