Biogas Fuel Chain!
BUSE Joins Pilot Project!
BUSE Gas B.V. is participating in a pilot project to reduce the burden on the environment. This involves using non-fossil and low-emission fuels to power generators on construction sites. Biomethane gas is used as a substitute for diesel.
6 organizations in the Dutch province of Gelderland got together to test the use of biogas on several construction sites. We spoke with BUSE Group CEO, Roland Bräkling, about the significance of this project for his company.
Mr. Bräkling, what made you want to participate in this project?
The uniqueness of our planet. The Earth has given us so much in the last decades. Now, it is time to give something back. Our shareholder’s awareness has also changed. They increasingly want a company that contributes to a greener society. Gashouders asked our Dutch subsidiary, BUSE Gas B.V. in Arnhem, about this pilot project at exactly the right time. We did our research and were convinced by Gashouders’ concept. Energy transition is currently a hot topic. We, the BUSE Group, want to do our part. We are also focusing on leaving a clean world to our children.
What exactly are you contributing to this pilot project?
We are a specialist for producing cylinder bundles. Among other things. Our contribution to the pilot project is the design and construction of the storage tanks with these bundles, which store the biomethane. This mobile storage is transported to the construction site where it provides environmentally-friendly biogas as fuel for generators.
How can this project be integrated into your business policy and visions for the future?
At the BUSE Group, we always ask how we can contribute to a cleaner environment. The BUSE Group already participates in hydrogen and bio-CO2 projects in several countries. The “Sustainable Fuel Chain” (De Duurzame Brandstofketen) project therefore matches our corporate philosophy perfectly. Because of the flat hierarchies at the BUSE Group, the decision for BUSE Gas B.V. to participate in this project was made quickly. We simply seized the chance.
What are your personal expectations for this pilot project?
First and foremost, we are hoping to increase other companies’ awareness for our planet. We have to treat our Earth more carefully. Industry can make a major contribution to this. Of course, we expect this project to be successful and send the right signal, ecologically and economically. The costs of biogas as a fuel are comparable to those of diesel. The storage tanks with our bundles can be refilled and used at the next construction site. Truly a clean solution in every sense of the word.
