Volumes for biomethane have reached their highest ever levels, that’s according to biomethane supplier Gasrec.

Volumes reached an all-time high in June 2023 and Gasrec believe they will continue to rise due to pending orders from fleets for new gas-powered trucks.

June sales are the highest for biomethane in the company’s history, and represent a 250% increase versus March 2020 when demand had been soaring prior to the pandemic.

James Westcott, Gasrec COO, said: “Fleets are under pressure from customers to decarbonise, and bio-LNG (liquified natural gas) is the most viable, readily-available solution – plus it’s suitable for longer-haul missions, with quick refuelling times. This year we’ve already opened three new refuelling facilities in Lutterworth, Fradley Park and South Elmsall, increasing our network to 16 sites, and with three more due to be installed before the end of the year.”

He added: “Our fuels are once again significantly cheaper than diesel, meaning customers can save money whilst improving sustainability. For fleets looking at gas trucks today, our number one message is to talk to your fuel provider as soon as possible, to ensure they can have the refuelling infrastructure in place where needed and understand gas pricing. The demand right now is exceptional.”
