Scotland’s first biomethane HGV refuelling station opens

CNG Fuels has opened Scotland’s first renewable biomethane HGV filling station.

Located adjacent to the busiest transport route in Scotland between Edinburgh and Glasgow, the new site is capable of refuelling up to 450 trucks per day with the gas sourced from food waste.

“Glasgow and Scotland were at the centre of the world debate on climate change during COP26, injecting urgency into the global push to tackle the climate crisis,” said CNG Fuels chief executive, Philip Fjeld.

“Our new station, just outside Glasgow, is an example of real-world action on climate, unlocking low carbon deliveries across the busiest transport routes in Scotland and supporting the country to meet its emissions reduction targets.

“Renewable biomethane is the cleanest, most cost-effective solution for HGVs available today. Our growing network of refuelling stations gives fleets across the country the confidence to significantly cut emissions from transport, today.”

The new station is also located within proximity of two HGV dealerships – Scania and Iveco – which are among the leading manufactures of biomethane-ready HGVs.

CNG Fuels currently operates seven stations in the UK, with plans to open up to 14 more by 2023.
