Biomethane fuelling station installed

Biomethane fuelling station installed
The first compressed biomethane (CBM) refuelling facility in London has been set up to support a trial of a CBM-powered street cleansing vehicle.

Following the launch earlier this year of a commercial trial of the vehicle in the London Borough of Council, the group has now announced that the refuelling facility is ready.

The station, which can provide the Iveco Daily vehicle with the fuel it needs for its 60-mile route every day, has been set up in the council's York Way Depot.

Gasrec, the UK's first producer of liquid biomethane fuel, was supported by logistics partner Hardstaff Group, to set up the facility for the vehicle operated by Veolia Environmental Services, the UK's largest waste management group.

Richard Lilleystone, chief executive officer at Gasrec, said: "This step makes concrete the infrastructure for our trial and also lays the foundations for possible further collaboration with Camden Council. In doing so, it helps underscore the potential for further commercial fleets."

The CBM is produced from landfill gas and has the lowest "carbon intensity" of all commercially available biofuels, emitting 70 per cent less than fossil fuels.
