We practice what we preach and operate CNG powered trucks to promote the most efficient and carbon reduced fleet on the UK roads.
Working in harmony with our Anaerobic digestion customers we use CNG fuelled trucks to operate the virtual pipeline service. We often use the AD facility as a truck fuelling station.
CNG offers a cleaner, quieter and cheaper drive, without losing the benefits of a normal truck. Currently, several manufacturers (Iveco, Scania and Volvo) offer powerful CNG trucks which match a diesel truck in terms of performance and efficiency, but also contribute to creating a cleaner world.
LNG trucks are even considerably cleaner than Euro-VI diesel trucks; the CO2 emission is 17% lower and there is less health damage caused by dust particles and NOx. Transport using CNG already meets the strict European emission standards set for freight transport, without the need for additional measures such as the use of particulate filters. Trucks that run on CNG are also up to 75% quieter than diesel trucks.
One of their biggest advantages, however, is that they are extremely cost-effective, using on average 10-15% less fuel than a diesel equivalent.
