Demand for bio-CNG nearly triples at Leyland refuelling centre

Demand for renewable biomethane CNG fuel at a refuelling centre off the M6 at Leyland has nearly tripled in a year.

Customers using the refuelling station, which is operated by CNG Fuels and backed by gas network Cadent, include Waitrose, Asda, DHL, Argos and H Parkinson Haulage.

Latest data shows the volume of gas dispensed at the site in March this year was 170 per cent higher than in March 2017.
 
Last year, a report revealed that HGVs using the station emit up to 84 per cent less carbon than diesel equivalents, as well as far less air-polluting nitrogen oxides.
 
Operational since 2016, the gas comes directly from a high pressure pipeline, which makes it a UK-first. The CNG dispensed at the site is certified as renewable and sustainable, as CNG Fuels pays for an equivalent amount of biomethane made from food waste to enter the network.

Seema Kennedy MP, Parliamentary Private Secretary to the Prime Minister, visited the site in her South Ribble constituency to see how it is helping UK hauliers to slash their carbon emissions and save money.
 
“I’ve been really impressed,” she said. “We’ve got huge wagons fuelling up with 100% renewable gas. This is really exciting, it is the decarbonised future that we’re all looking for.”
