CNG Fuels has opened the world’s largest public access biomethane refuelling station in Avonmouth.

Located near the M4/M5 junction just outside Bristol, the site has 14 high-speed dispensers and is capable of refuelling up to 80 HGVs per hour.

CNG Fuels now has eight renewable biomethane refuelling stations in the UK, and has plans to open an additional 12 sites per annum. Demand for the fuel, which is sourced from food waste, has increased by 1,000% over the last five years.

Philip Fjeld, CEO of CNG Fuels, said: “Brands across the country are under more and more pressure to cut emissions from fleets and renewable biomethane is the only commercially viable solution on the market today. We are continuing to see high increases in demand and with the recent news of the 2040 ban on new diesel HGV’s, we expect the pace of demand to continue.

“We are rapidly expanding our nationwide network of refuelling stations, ensuring sites are strategically located across major trucking routes to make them as accessible as possible. The new site in Avonmouth is in a key location for many of our customers, allowing them to expand the reach of their low carbon deliveries into the south west and Wales. In addition to our expanding network, we are also preparing for a multiple fuel future to ensure that when new technologies emerge, the infrastructure will already be in place to cater to demand.”
