Lorries will soon be able to fill their tanks with biomethane at what is claimed to be the world’s largest low carbon Heavy Goods Vehicle (HGV) refuelling station.

The new facility will open in Avonmouth, Bristol and will be capable of refuelling 80 HGVs an hour from 14 high-speed dispensers.

The project, which is being developed by refuelling infrastructure provider CNG Fuels, is designed to serve fleet operators with green aspirations.

The biomethane on the station is sourced from food waste – it is believed to be the lowest carbon alternative to diesel for HGVs reducing greenhouse gas emissions by up to 90%.

Brands that will use the station include  Warburtons, Farm Foods, Hermes and Wessex Water.

Steven Gray, Warburtons National Transport Manager, said: Switching our HGV fleet from diesel to biomethane will be critical for reaching our transport decarbonisation goals.

“CNG Fuels’ new low carbon refuelling station in Avonmouth is perfectly situated for our distribution centres in the region and will extend the range of low carbon deliveries we can make across the country.”
