If we compare this type of fuel with traditional fuels, the savings are up to 40 percent. Thus, the initial investment required is recovered in a short period of time.

We do not need to buy a new vehicle to use autogas. It is possible to re-engineer.

To whom is it addressed?

Heavy vehicles between three and ten years old. It is possible to replace diesel engines with others powered by autogas or BioAutogas.

Autogas benefits

This type of sustainable fuel is less taxed and more efficient in terms of price and consumption. This important saving makes autogas a very interesting bet. It is self-financing in the short or medium term, allowing the investment made at the beginning to be amortized.

The objective is to achieve the decarbonization of transport by 2050. This is one of the fundamental pillars of the strategy defined by the European Union to achieve climate neutrality. In this regard, the sector will have to reduce its greenhouse gas emissions by 90 percent. Autogas in heavy urban transport is a sustainable alternative to traditional fuels. It also offers significant cost savings.

The autogas-powered engines of some companies, such as BeGas, drastically reduce polluting emissions from heavy urban transport. They reduce suspended particulate matter and NOx levels by more than 90 percent. In addition, they achieve noise levels 50 percent lower than those emitted by diesel vehicles. This contributes to the reduction of noise pollution in cities.

In short, autogas is positioned as the ideal alternative to move towards sustainable mobility in an affordable way.
