Benefic projects aims to accelerate the deployment of compressed natural gas (CNG) and liquid natural gas (LNG) stations in Belgium, which will be funded by the CEF program of the European Commission.
This proposal aims to support the cross-border deployment of alternative fuel infrastructure in Belgium (regions of Flanders and Brussels Capital) and in the Netherlands.
With regard to natural gas vehicles, the call for Benefic projects concerns only Belgium and the installation of four service stations is proposed, two of which are in the Brussels Capital Region and two that combine CNG and LNG in Flanders.
In all cases, limited to 20% of the eligible costs, the maximum financial support will depend on the type of station installed. The maximum amount is set at 60.000 euros for a CNG station and 240.000 euros for a LNG refuelling facility.
In terms of time, projects must be submitted before May 14 this year and winners will be announced in June and July this year.
