Spain: bioLPG and circular economy for heavy duty conversions

Transport continues to be responsible for approximately a quarter of global greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions, being the sector that most CO2 issued in 2019 and which offers worse reduction expectations. In fact, more than 70% of the emissions from transport are due to motor vehicles and, a good part of them, correspond to heavy transport.

With the aim of accelerating transport decarbonisation and in line with EU’s Circular Economy Action Plan, BeGas is integrating circular economy premises into its business strategy. For this, the Spanish company is betting on bioLPG and the reuse of heavy vehicle fleets.

In addition to installing their engines in new vehicles, BeGas offers an alternative that is unique in the European market: the replacement of diesel engines in urban trucks and buses between three and 10 years old by the company’s BEGAS AVG engines powered by 100% LPG or bioLPG with Euro VI-D approval.

With this solution, BeGas converts existing fleets to run on renewable Autogas, helping local administrations and companies with fewer resources accelerate the transition towards carbon neutral operations, without the need to carry out a large economic investment, and promotes a new model of production and consumption focused on reducing waste and encouraging reuse of vehicle fleets.

BeGas bets on new models of sustainable transport that must address the reduction of emissions throughout the vehicle value chain. That is what reveals the so-called ‘well to the wheel’ analysis, covering the manufacture of the vehicle, the production of the energy and its own use, until the management of its useful and subsequent recycled life.

“We intend to contribute to a fair, inclusive and efficient ecological transition,” said Pedro Silva, CEO and co-founder of BeGas. For more information, please check this link.
