Eurocentral Bio-CNG Station Operational

CNG FUELS has opened Scotland’s first public access biomethane refuelling station for HGVs, located adjacent to the busiest transport route in Scotland between Edinburgh and Glasgow and putting Inverness and Aberdeen within range of a low carbon refuelling network for the first time.
The new site can refuel up to 450 lorries per day with renewable and sustainable biomethane sourced from food waste, cutting carbon emissions by 90% and reducing lifetime vehicle cost by 30%-40% compared to diesel, said CNG Fuels.
“Waitrose, Hermes and Warburtons are just some of the major UK brands to switch from diesel to renewable biomethane. HGVs account for 16% of UK transport emissions, and 4.8% of total greenhouse gas emissions in Scotland. The new station will cut 70,000 tonnes of greenhouse gas emissions each year when fully utilised,” said Philip Fjeld, CEO of CNG Fuels.
The new station, located at the Eurocentral industrial estate off the M8 near Bellshill, will support local Scottish fleets as well as brands making low-carbon deliveries from England to Scotland. The station is also located within proximity of two HGV dealerships, Scania and Iveco, which are among the leading manufacturers of biomethane-ready HGVs.”
