    metric tons of CO2 saved by every refrigerated

French supermarket group Carrefour has a clear objective: use biodegradable waste to fuel the trucks that deliver goods to its stores around the country. The waste, some of which is taken from Carrefour’s own stores, is transformed into bio-methane gas and subsequently used to power a fleet of nearly 500 trucks in France.

A SUSTAINABLE MODEL
Bio-NVG* fuel is derived from biodegradable waste, making it a model of low-consumption and efficiency. From formation right through to consumption, the process recycles waste, the fuel emits very few fine particles and NOx – thereby reducing CO2 emissions by 95%, plus the trucks involved make half the noise of those with diesel engines.

AN OPEN INVITATION
Carrefour has decided to accelerate the deployment of its trucks powered by bio-methane, taking the total to 500 by the end of 2017. At the same time, 20 service stations offering Bio-NGV will be opened across France, and made available to all transport companies who wish to switch to bio-methane.

MULTI-SERVICE STATIONS
The first service station equipped for Bio-NGV* was opened at La Courneuve in the Paris region, near a number of major motorways. Open 24/7, it provides fuel for all types of Bio-NGV vehicles. It can also supply refrigerated trucks with liquid nitrogen, a greener alternative to using diesel for cold stores.

And tomorrow ?

ENGIE already has a network of more than 140 service stations providing alternative fuels across France, with a further 20 being added by 2018.
The aim is to open 100 new outlets throughout Europe by 2020.
