Gasrec, supplier of liquefied natural gas for transport, has produced a video for YouTube to show how the growing use of natural gas as a transport fuel is helping reduce pollution from HGVs across the UK.
The company said greater use of this low-emission fuel will help the UK meet its stringent future emission reduction targets and improve air quality. It will also allow transport operators to reduce costs and improve their environmental performance.
Gasrec was formed in 2003 to develop a process for clean-up and liquefaction of methane from landfill gas, anaerobic digestion and other stranded sources.
The company owns and operates 11 refuelling stations across the UK. Included in the stations is the UK’s first ‘open-access’ Bio-LNG filling station at the Daventry International Rail Freight Terminal (DIRFT), which Gasrec said fuels more than 35% of all gas-powered HGVs on UK roads.
Gasrec has secured EU funding to now expand its network of fuelling sites at strategic locations across the UK and Europe.
The firm works closely with manufactuers, retailers and operators to help introduce natural-gas technology into logistics operations. In April, it displayed the UK’s first first dedicated Euro-6 gas-powered HGV at the CV Show, a Scania tractor unit that recently entered service with Argos and has been trialled by a number of other retail and logistics companies.
