First Scottish Biomethane Station

CNG FUELS has started building Scotland’s first public access renewable biomethane HGV refuelling station.
The station near Glasgow will refuel up to 450 lorries a day when it opens in November, enabling HGVs to make low-carbon deliveries across most of Scotland. Most of England and Wales is already within a 300 mile round trip of a biomethane refuelling station and the new facility will put Inverness and Aberdeen within this range.
Warburtons is the latest to announce that it’s adopting biomethane, following companies such as Hermes, John Lewis, Waitrose and Asda.
“Renewable biomethane, is the lowest carbon, most cost-effective alternative to diesel for HGVs, it is 35%-40% cheaper and cuts vehicle greenhouse gas emissions by up to 85%. From next year CNG Fuels will dispense fully carbon neutral fuel by sourcing biomethane from manure,” said Philip Fjeld, CEO of CNG Fuels.
“Biomethane can help the country meet its net zero targets and it is fitting that the station will open just as Glasgow hosts the UN Climate Summit.”
The new station will be sited at Eurocentral Industrial Estate off the M8 near Bellshill. Two more stations will be built in Scotland, near Larkhall and Livingston.
