LNG – The fuel of the future

Transportation plays an essential role in a functioning economy.

All medium and long term forecasts predict growth in the volume of road traffic, especially heavy goods traffic. Global, European and national climate protection targets aim at a reduction in emissions produced by vehicles.  The use of gas as a fuel can make a major contribution to achieving these targets, since vehicle traffic contributes about 45% of emissions..

New CNG trailers for mobile gas supplies

Since 2015 two new CNG trailers, manufactured by Gföllner Fahrzeugbau und Containertechnik, entered operation at RAG. These trailers have been supplying RAG.ERDGAS.MOBIL customers with high quality (approx. 99% methane) compressed natural gas. Following the withdrawal from service of a trailer last year after many years of reliable use, procurement of the new trailers ensured state of the art operations. It also enabled us to meet the rising demand for mobile energy supplies – we now have a total of seven trailers, each with a capacity of 5,500 cubic metres (nominal volume), available to provide emergency supplies or supply gas installations that are not connected to the grid. The RAG.ERDGAS.MOBIL team will be happy to answer any enquiries about the new trailers or provide you with a quotation.

Natural gas – fuel that is economical, safe and clean

Natural gas has been used as an especially economical, safe and clean vehicle fuel in Austria and around the world for decades. Methane, principally from natural sources, biofuel production or converting renewable solar and wind energy, is compressed so that it can be dispensed at filling stations. This standard product, compressed natural gas (CNG), is now available at many filling stations in Austria and Europe.
