NGV/bioNGV, a concrete alternative to petroleum fuels


SUEZ, a committed actor in the resource revolution.

Creating alternative energy resources, biogas production from waste and wastewater.

Today, we number nearly 7 billion people of whom almost 50% are urban. With runaway population growth and urban sprawl, cities must face new resource management challenges. This means giving a second life to our waste. This means reinventing how we manage our fragile water resources. We need to innovate our wastewater treatment by developing solutions for reuse, recovery and enhancement of sewage plant sludge. Today, thanks to the expertise of SUEZ, this sludge is already used to produce energy: biogas.


Derived from wastewater treatment, this sewage sludge produces biogas by a kind of digestion phenomenon. Biogas, or bio methane, is obtained through its purification - energy that has the same advantage as natural gas. Injected into the network, compressed, liquefied, bio methane is also a green fuel used by many types of vehicles, cars, buses, household dumpsters, and even - in the case of BIOLNG (liquefied natural Biogas), heavy goods vehicles.
