Biofuel supplier Gasrec to build next bio-LNG refuelling station at Avonmouth


The next fuel station that for vehicles that will run on biomethane is to be opened by Gasrec at Avonmouth, near Bristol.

It will be built on land next to the M49, M4 and M5 motorways and will be capable of refuelling up to 700 vehicles a day.


The facility will form part of Gasrec’s planned network of refuelling stations that will provide bio-LNG, which is a blend of liquefied natural gas and biomethane generated from household food waste.

This plant will be the second following the opening of the initial plant at Daventry in May.

When substituted for diesel, bio-LNG can cut fuel costs and CO2 by up to 35 per cent, while delivering a 90 per cent reduction in NOX.

Gasrec commercial development manager Doug Leaf said: “This announcement represents a further step towards our goal of developing a national bio-LNG refuelling network.

“At Avonmouth, we will have fuel available from October and over the coming months we will be working with major retailers and logistics companies wishing to build their fleets of bio-LNG fuelled vehicles.

“Our refuelling stations are available for anyone wishing to share the benefits of bio-LNG to use. We think this is important, as it avoids the need for any single company to invest in its own refuelling infrastructure.”
