The recycling company REMONDIS and the Westfalen Group are continuing to push climate protection in municipalities with the construction of a bio-CNG station, where REMONDIS’ waste collection trucks will refuel. The two companies are working together to use renewable natural gas as an alternative fuel to make waste logistics in inner-city transport more environmentally friendly.
With the inauguration of a new bio-CNG station in Coesfeld (North Rhine-Westphalia), the official go-ahead was given for the long-term cooperation between the two companies. At the public station (Dreischkamp 38), all commercially available trucks and cars can now fill up around the clock with non-fossil biogas produced from waste and residual materials.
The start of the cooperation was announced earlier this year. “During the production of bio-CNG, almost the same amount of CO2 is absorbed that is emitted again during subsequent combustion. Due to this cycle, the total amount of CO2 in the atmosphere remains constant and does not increase,” said Julian Janocha, Head of Gas Mobility at Westfalen, at that time.
REMONDIS is also aware that the use of bio-CNG contributes to a climate-friendly future. “By switching to bio-CNG, we are not only offering citizens, but also commercial and industrial customers in the Coesfeld district a climate-friendly waste collection service. In addition, we are also reducing our dependence on the global fuel markets,” commented Peter Brunsbach, Managing Director of REMONDIS Münsterland.
