Biomethane from agricultural and other biodegradable waste or residues emits nearly 10 times less CO₂ emissions than fossil liquid fuels. In fact, because methane is not emitted into the atmosphere, biomethane is hundreds of times more efficient. Cleaner urban air sets the stage for longer life and more years of healthy life.

You can pay for CBM at Thori Tanklad stations with a business payment credit card. To apply for a credit card, please send an application to, and after signing the corresponding contract, you will receive an invoice at the beginning of each month for the amount of CBM consumed in the previous month.

In general, the price for business customers is negotiable, with a discount of up to 15% on the postage price, depending on the amount of CBM consumed. 
In the application, mark:

  • Company name and registration code

  • Name of the person empowered to sign (member of the management board or authorised representative)

  • Contact

  • Contact person's phone number and e-mail address

  • How many cards are desired

  • Whether and what brief information is desired to be displayed as text on the card (for card identification). 

  • Where you would like to pick up the card (Pärnu filling station* / Koksvere station)

Car Dealership

Many well-known car manufacturers offer passenger cars, commercial vehicles, buses and trucks with CNG-compatible CNG engines. Currently, Škoda, Opel, Volkswagen and SEAT CNG cars are for sale in Estonia  and Fiat models.  Gas-powered commercial vehicles and buses are offered by Mercedes-Benz, MAN, Iveco, Scania and Volvo.

The CNG unit can also be installed on diesel and petrol cars. This will only reduce the trunk size. There are a number of companies in Estonia that offer this service. Usually, the cost of the conversion will pay for itself within a year, after which you will spend almost half the price. Remodelling of a diesel or petrol car usually costs up to €2,000 for passenger cars and up to €8,000 for trucks.  The rebuilt petrol-engined cars then run on either petrol or methane.


In the case of diesel trucks, the addition of a CNG unit means that diesel fuel consumption remains, but is reduced by about half because methane gas is added to the air intake. 

Already today, there are also trucks (Scania, Iveco, MAN) that use only methane (CNG or CBM), in which case the engine is a gas engine and the mileage is around 400 km. 

When methane gas is liquefied, it has to be cooled to atmospheric pressure of minus 162 C and that is called liquefied natural gas (LNG) or liquefied biomethane (LBM). LNG increases the mileage of trucks by up to 1000 km. The reason for this is simple: truck CNG cylinders needs 5 litre space of compressed natural gas in order to have same amount of energy equal to 1 litre of diesel. For LNG, this volume is only 1.3 litres, which is why the mileage of LNG trucks is around 1000 km, similar to diesel trucks.
