The Importance of Using LNG in Road Freight Transport
Using LNG in road freight transportation, particularly in Hungary and neighbouring countries, could provide a reduction in greenhouse gas emissions of 15-30% compared to normal fuels transported in trucks.
Benefits of the First Shell LNG station in Hungary
The new Hungarian filling station is an important component of Shell’s European LNG network. The launch is aligned with the Hungarian government's emissions reduction objectives, and is a significant contributor to the expansion of Shell’s truck fuel business in Hungary and in surrounding countries such as Austria, Czechia, Germany, Romania, Slovenia and Slovakia.
