Burhorst-Renz OHG was founded by Werner Renz in 1973. Since then, the Lohne-based company has been supplying commercial and private customers as well as the agricultural sector.
Alongside its traditional heating oil, diesel and lubricants business, the foundation stone for today's core business - self-service filling stations - was also laid in 1973.
To expand our filling station network, we are constantly looking for suitable plots of land or existing filling stations in Germany (lease or purchase) and are happy to receive every offer. You will find more information here.
Our engineering partner Greeen Solutions GmbH supports us in the planning, construction and maintenance of our filling stations for alternative fuels. The common goal is the establishment of a nationwide filling station network for renewable fuels such as cryogenic liquid natural gases (LNG, LBG).
Here are some impressions of the first steps into a clean future.
We are pleased to welcome our new colleague Marc Liegl to our team and wish him a warm welcome.
As Sustainability Energy Manager in Business Development he is responsible for the industrial customer segment for LNG in Germany, Switzerland, Austria and Italy.
He will support our customers from our office in Lauterbach...
Our Alternoil protective clothing has been specially developed for handling cryogenic gases and is therefore ideal for use when refuelling LNG vehicles.
In addition to goggles and cryogenic gloves, we also supply masks to protect the entire face ...
We are pleased to announce that the Federal Council has decided in its meeting today to extend the toll exemption for natural gas trucks until 31.12.2023 in Germany.
Dr. Timm Kehler of Zukunft ERDGAS comments on the decision of the Bundesrat.
We make environmentally friendly and renewable fuels available nationwide for heavy goods vehicles.
Deep-freeze natural gas can already be filled at our petrol stations for renewable fuels.
This year, we will also be providing Bio-LNG fuel from biological waste processes, which is certified according to the European standard ISCC.
Liquefied Natural Gas is a cryogenic and liquefied natural gas with a very high energy density and consists mainly of methane (CH4).Compared to conventional diesel, LNG generates up to 25 per cent less CO2, up to 90 per cent fewer nitrogen oxides and low particulate emissions. LNG thus represents the future of mobility for heavy goods traffic.
LNG is a politically desired solution for sustainable and environmentally friendly mobility. Its technology is mature, immediately available and already established and proven in other countries.
In 2015, the German Energy Agency founded the LNG Taskforce together with the DVGW (German Technical and Scientific Association for Gas and Water) and Zukunft Erdgas. In addition to the LNG Taskforce, it also moderates and coordinates the Natural Gas Mobility Initiative.
It acts as the central and cross-sector contact for natural gas and renewable methane/biomethane. In order to achieve the climate targets for transport by 2030, and to increase the share of natural gas in the fuel mix to four per cent, the German Energy Agency is supporting the German government in achieving these goals.
