Scotland to start 1st lorry biomethane refuelling station: Lorries & additional heavy goods vehicles (HGVs) will very soon have the ability to fill up with greener fuel at what is declared to be Scotland’s 1st renewable biomethane refuelling station.
Renewable biomethane is reported to be the lowest carbon & most affordable alternative to diesel fuel for HGVs and it is evaluated it is as much as 40% cheaper and lowers emissions up to 85%.
Situated close to Glasgow, the station will be set up by Bio-CNG supplier CNG Fuels, and is forecast to refuel as much as 450 lorries per day when it opens in November, helping HGVs to make low carbon deliveries.
Philip Fjeld, Chief Executive Officer of CNG Fuels, stated: “Fleet operators keen to cut carbon and save money are switching to biomethane in droves, and our first station in Scotland will play a vital part in our network, allowing gas trucks to make deliveries throughout Britain.
“Biomethane can play a key role in helping the country meet its net zero targets and it is fitting that the station will open just as Glasgow hosts the UN Climate Summit.”
