CNG Fuels has today opened Scotland’s first renewable biomethane HGV filling station.

Located at the Eurocentral industrial estate off the M8 near Bellshill, the site is capable of refuelling up to 450 trucks per day with the gas sourced from food waste.

Philip Fjeld, CEO of CNG Fuels, said: “Glasgow and Scotland were at the centre of the world debate on climate change during COP26, injecting urgency into the global push to tackle the climate crisis. Our new station, just outside Glasgow, is an example of real-world action on climate, unlocking low carbon deliveries across the busiest transport routes in Scotland and supporting the country to meet its emissions reduction targets.

“Renewable biomethane is the cleanest, most cost-effective solution for HGVs available today. Our growing network of refuelling stations gives fleets across the country the confidence to significantly cut emissions from transport, today.”

CNG Fuels currently operates seven stations in the UK, with plans to open up to 14 more by 2023.
