EKB and Alternoil conclude long-term follow-up contract
Press release

Bremen, August 2023. EKB Container Logistik, market leader in container transportation in Germany, and Alternoil, filling station operator for alternative fuels, are continuing their cooperation. The companies signed a long-term follow-up contract for the continued supply of the renewable fuel REEFUEL®.

As a pioneer in the transformation process towards a clean transport sector, Alternoil has set itself the goal of making an important contribution to the decarbonization of heavy goods transport. Since the end of 2020, the company has been offering the transport sector the climate-friendly fuel alternative REEFUEL® (Bio-LNG & eLNG) within its own nationwide filling station network. The fuel alternative for the sustainable defossilization of heavy goods transport, which is unique in Europe, is produced from green hydrogen generated by wind energy and biomethane from biological waste processes. The REEFUEL® product represents a milestone in the transformation process in the transport sector, as its use guarantees customers significant CO2 savings compared to the base value of diesel.

EKB Container Logistik relies on the sustainable fuel alternative REEFUEL®, thus leading the way as a pioneer in the industry and sending a clear signal for more climate protection. The company now runs more than 35% of its fleet on this renewable fuel.

"By using REEFUEL®, we have been able to achieve significant emission benefits. We are therefore convinced that by continuing our cooperation with Alternoil GmbH, we can further advance the defossilization of heavy goods transport," says Holger Schulz, Managing Partner of EKB Container Logistik.

Alternoil GmbH is also pleased to continue the successful partnership. "The volume of freight transport is continuously increasing, which is why it is essential to find climate-friendly transport solutions and implement them on a large scale. We are therefore delighted to be taking an important step towards climate-neutral container logistics together with EKB," says Alexander Renz, Managing Partner of Alternoil GmbH.
