The rental company AMG Alquiler de Maquinaria, in collaboration with REPSOL, will present on January 10 at the Finca La Cónsula, in the Palacio de Cristal, in Churriana, Malaga, its project for the transformation of generators to LPG. The objective is to move towards a more sustainable future, according to AMG and Repsol.
AMG in collaboration with BeGas, a manufacturer of ecological engines for heavy vehicles specialized in alternative energies, and together with REPSOL, a global multi-energy company, have embarked on a project to transform the diesel engine of the generator set to operate simultaneously with diesel fuel and LPG. This operation is already carried out in industrial vehicles to reduce their polluting emissions and now, thanks to this project, it will be implemented in a power generator intended to supply electricity in off-grid environments.
WHAT IS LPG?
It is a liquefied gas from a mixture of butane and propane gas. Ecological energy recognized by the European Union as an alternative fuel in Directive 2014/94/EU. It is the most widely used alternative fuel in the world in different sectors. It is a non-discriminatory fuel capable of reaching any environment or geographical area. As it is transported in tanker trucks, it does not depend on the gas network. It is safe. It is non-toxic and non-corrosive. It meets the same requirements and safety standards, and has the lowest flammability range.
HOW DO WE WORK TOWARDS A SUSTAINABLE FUTURE?
El GLP, también conocido como AutoGás, logra:
Up to 14% reduction in CO2 emissions compared to gasoline.
96% reduction in NOx emissions compared to diesel.
99% reduction in particulate emissions.
50% reduction in noise levels.
