Connect2LNG is three-year project led by Unilever, as part of a consortium of companies and third-party Logistics providers (3PL’s). Together we will find ways to break through the current situation in Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG) whereby it is the most mature, sustainable and cost-effective alternative fuel compared with diesel yet lacks a pan-European network of fueling stations. By agreeing longer-term volumes and routes, transporters can develop a real commercial business case for LNG trucks.
LNG represents the following environmental benefits compared to traditional diesel fuels:
• 11.5% less CO₂ emission
• 35% less emission of nitrogen oxides (NOx)
• 95% less emission of particulate matter
• 25-50% less noise
