This year, a further two CNG/biomethane refuelling stations will be opened, with plans for three more. The demand for green gases has increased three-fold In the last 12 months, says Roadgas, a Nottingham-based company which provides gas infrastructure to transport firms. Biomethane is produced from waste feedstocks and food waste as an alternative to diesel, and can cut greenhouse emissions by up to 85%, with a cost saving of 30 to 35% says the firm. Jon Harman, Operations Director at Nottingham based Roadgas explains: “Renewable and sustainable biomethane allows companies to achieve reductions in their greenhouse gas emissions to limit pollution but more importantly allows operators to save money on the total running costs of a diesel fleet.”
The latest biogas refuelling stations are located in the North West and West Midlands.
