World leader in gases, technologies and services for Industry and Health, Air Liquide is present in 80 countries with approximately 65,000 employees and serves more than 3.5 million customers and patients.
Air Liquide is a committed stakeholder to new energies. It has been developing technologies and expertise that span the entire biomethane value chain. The Group has designed its own membranes’ technology for upgrading biogas and enhances the value created by Anaerobic Digestion plants. These solutions enable the upgrading of all biogases for subsequent injection into the natural gas grid, the production of vehicle fuel (compressed or liquefied natural gas or biogas) and liquid biomethane.
Not only providing technology, Air Liquide also makes partnerships with biogas producers and shares its experience. It operates nearly 50 biogas sites worldwide. The biomethane that is upgraded by Air Liquide can be notably used as fuel. By acquisting FordonsGas and Skagerak, the Group operates around 50 bio-NGV stations in Swedish territory. These stations are able to refuel vehicles with compressed natural gas (CNG) or/and liquefied natural gas (LNG) on the same site, produced in part from biomethane. Thanks to Air Liquide’s gas liquefaction technologies, some sites can also provide liquid nitrogen for cryogenic refrigerated transport.
