Gasrec, a leading bio-fuel supplier, is the first UK firm to offer customers access to Renewable Transport Fuels Obligation (RTFO)-certified biomethane through either a grid-connected facility (CNG) or through tanker-supplied liquified natural gas (LNG).
“Until now, if you were a heavy truck operator and wanted to get the best carbon saving for your fleet, you needed to run a 40-tonne 4×2 tractor on grid-connected CNG and get biomethane credits.”
James Westcott, Chief Commercial Officer of Gasrec.
Gasrec has secured biomethane-linked CO2 savings on an RTFO-certification basis for LNG arriving into the UK through National Grid on the Isle of Grain.
“We believe the opportunity to cut CO2 by 80% or more, in an industry targeted with reducing greenhouse gas emissions from HGVs by 15% by 2025, will hold serious sway with environmentally-conscious operators.”
Qualification under the RTFO programme ensures fuel is from renewable sources and allows the reporting of CO2 savings by vehicle operators, making it ideal for fleets wanting to maximise their sustainability.
“It no longer matters what configuration gas vehicle you need to run; we can offer access to the greenest fuels available today,” Westcott concluded.
The fuel which goes into the vehicle will not change, but certification ensures all gas sold is matched by biomethane, and that the same kilogram of biomethane is not sold twice.
