A bubble of air at the Paris Motor Show 2018

(bio)gas, a mobility solution for today and tomorrow!

The AFGNV, GRDF and GRTgaz invite you to discover, in a fun and instructive way, the main qualities of VNG (Vehicular Natural Gas) and bioVNG (renewable form also called biogas). Improving air quality, decarbonising the transport sector, recycling agricultural and domestic waste to produce bioVNG offering an alternative fuel under controlled economic conditions... all these strengths will be presented to you there.

Did you know?

  • 20 million vehicles run on VNG worldwide including: 1 million in Italy and 100,000 in Germany
  • Using VNG reduces polluting emissions: 70% less NOx compared to diesel and very few fine particles
  • Using bioVNG contributes to the fight against global warming: 80% less CO2 emissions compared to diesel
  • Less noise with bio(gas) vehicles: 50% less compared to a diesel engine

VNG and bioVNG in France, already a reality

France now has the largest network in Europe stations of VNG refuelling stations for HGVs and records the largest number of registrations of industrial vehicles running on natural gas. The pace that refuelling stations are opening is increasing. By the end of 2018, the network of VNG stations will benefit from approximately 150 refuelling points (twice as many compared to the previous year) with an objective of 250 by 2020. This network of stations will support the development of the light vehicle segment in which the range of vehicles available is expanding;
