ReFuels, a leading supplier of renewable biomethane (Bio-CNG) for decarbonising heavy goods vehicles, has opened its 12th public access Bio-CNG refueling station in Corby, Northamptonshire. The station operates under the CNG Fuels brand and will serve HGVs along major trucking routes in the East Midlands, facilitating the transition to sustainable and renewable biomethane as a fast-track fuel for reducing CO2 emissions.
The new Corby station is a joint venture with Foresight Group and features 12 fuel pump islands, capable of refueling over 60 trucks per hour. It has a total capacity of more than 25 million kilograms (kg) of Bio-CNG annually. Located on the A43 road, it will serve both local and passing fleets in the East Midlands region, introducing them to the benefits of Bio-CNG as a low-carbon transport fuel for HGVs.
With the addition of the Corby station, CNG Fuels’ network in the UK can refuel more than 6,000 HGVs daily, dispensing over 264,000 tonnes of biomethane annually. This has the potential to save more than 750,000 tonnes of CO2 emissions compared to diesel each year, says teh company. The company aims to have 30-40 stations in operation by the end of 2025, enabling a total capacity of up to 15,000 HGVs per day and over 600 million kg of biomethane each year.
ReFuels is also constructing another station in Bangor, North Wales, set to commence operations within the next two months. Furthermore, at least four additional stations are expected to begin construction during the current calendar year.
