The first bioCNG station open to the public in Belgium has been inaugurated at the Total fuel pump located at the entrance of the Brussels Morning Market, reports The Brussels Times.

The Total site chosen to host Belgium’s first bioCNG station is next to the headquarters of SIBELGA, which already operates 20 stations and has two more slow-fill CNG stations undergoing.

CNG-fuelled vehicles drivers in Belgium can now refuel at 130 stations across the country, with four in Brussels and about ten in the suburbs. Companies as Total, Dats and Q8 have plans to install more in the short term, says Didier Hendrickx of the Federation. In Hendrickx´s opinion, Brussels would need about 20 by 2030.

Today there are about 18,500 CNG-powered vehicles in Belgium, of which around 1,000 are in Brussels, according to a study by the Commission for the Regulation of Electricity and Gas (CREG)
