Gasrec offers government-certified bio-LNG

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).

Natural gas-powered trucks typically see COsavings of around 15% for long-distance motorway work, but when fuelled with biomethane, COreductions are as high as 80-95%

“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 COsavings 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 COby 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 COsavings 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.
