UK firm CNG Fuels reported in mid-December that it had opened Scotland's first station for refuelling heavy goods vehicles with bio-methane.

The station near Glasgow will refuel up to 450 lorries daily, resulting in a cut in CO2 emissions of 70,000 metric tons annually, CNG Fuels said in a statement. It will receive bio-methane from waste feedstocks that has been approved under the UK's Renewable Transport Fuel Obligation.

Among the station's users will be UK supermarket chain Waitrose and courier firm Hermes.

CNG Fuels now has seven bio-methane filling stations in operation in the UK and plans to open a further 14 by 2023. It also intends to trial the supply of hydrogen across its network later this year.
