LNG for transportation, micro-liquefaction arrives in Brescia

The first plant in Europe opened in Manerbio

The first LNG filling station in Europe equipped with a methane and biomethane liquefier connected to the gas pipeline network was opened, at the presence of Councilor for Economic Development of Lombardy Alessandro Mattinzoli, in Manerbio (Brescia) on Friday.
The facility, installed at the filling station of Bergas, located in Manerbio near the A21 highway tollbooth, was built by Ecomotive Solution and NEC (RAM group) with the support of the University of Pisa and it is able to produce 2 tons of LNG per day.
Councilor Mattinzoli underlined that “the opening takes place precisely at the time when the Region of Lombardy and Italy hold the presidency of EUSALP, the Alpine Macroregion, where we as institution have placed the green economy at the heart of our debate with Europe.” The plant of Manerbio “is a great example to show our European partners as a best practice.”
Mattinzoli also considered it “crucial that all those projects that are beneficial to the environmental sustainability should be somehow incentivized.” As a consequence, he announced, “we started off with the replacement of commercial vehicles and now we will have the LNG production here: a system that reduces dramatically emissions of CO2, particulate matter and phosphates in our cities.”
