Germany's Ruhe Group will inaugurate its second bio-LNG production plant in Parmen this month, it announced on October 26. With a capacity of 7.5 tonnes/day, the plant will contribute to the region's transition away from fossil fuels by supplying bio-LNG for trucks, tractors, ships, and buses.

The Parmen plant follows the success of Ruhe group's first compact bio-LNG plant in Darchau near Luneburg, which produces up to 2.5 tonnes/day of carbon-neutral fuel. 

In a statement, Thomas Rolfes, managing director of the Ruhe group of Companies, said the company is dedicated to sustainability and regional energy concepts. "A decisive building block for this is the production of bio-LNG, as we are thus further expanding our contribution to a regional circular economy,” he added.

The Ruhe group's plans include the implementation of eight additional bio-LNG plants in 2024, with a combined capacity of over 60 tonnes/day.
