CNG Fuels plans to open Avonmouth refuelling station later this year to support fleet operators switching their trucks to run on biomethane made from food waste. The “world’s largest” renewable biomethane refuelling station is set to open near Bristol later this year, enabling truck drivers to fill up on low carbon fuel produced from food waste, CNG Fuels announced today. Located in Avonmouth near the M4/M5 junction, the refuelling station is geared at serving the some of the busiest freight routes in the UK, in a bid to encourage more operators of heavy goods vehicle (HGV) fleets to make the switch away from diesel fuel, according to the biomethane infrastructure developer. Renewable biomethane provided at the refuelling station will be sourced from 100 per cent food waste, enabling fleet operators to “run their vehicles on low-carbon fuel, support net zero plans and save money”, the company said. It claims the renewable biomethane is the most cost-effective green alternative to diesel for HGVs, enabling them to reduce greenhouse gas emissions by up to 90 per cent while also cutting costs by around 35 to 40 per cent.
