Pointing the way.
The sustainable and forward-looking compressed natural gas technology falls far short of its potential. Gibgas consulting – medien was the driving force in initiating the CNG-Club and is now partner of this non-profit organisation.
The CNG-Club supports the concerns of CNG drivers. It is the network, platform and mouthpiece for all members and market partners.

Worldwide the official name of natural gas for vehicles is CNG (Compressed natural gas). This neutral term combines everything that makes this 130 octane fuel so precious and sustainable: Biomethane (made of waste), natural gas from fossile sources and methane by clean power-to-gas. Also 2% of hydrogen can be contained. 3 renewable and 1 fossile source.
That is the reason why gibgas consulting – medien introduced this new brand. Successfully – Now at the instigation of the European Commission a european standardized fuel sign is going to be established. A hash mark with the lettering CNG. In Germany it can be found in the DIN 16942.

The printed atlas for filling stations in Germany and Europe was a milestone. In the era of internet and mobile communication gibgas consulting – medien launched the CNG-App for Europe. It is convenient to use, up-to-date and Europe-wide instead of a single solution for each country. The app is working on- and offline, includes a route planner, actual information regarding the state and numerous filtering functions. At the moment the app contains 34 countries and 5 languages.
