Gasrec Opens Bio LNG Filling Station in Aylesbury for Arla Foods (UK)

Gasrec has opened a dedicated Bio-LNG filling station at Arla Foods’ new £150 million dairy at Aylesbury, which is set to become the UK’s first zero carbon dairy.

Gasrec has a strategic partnership with leading European dairy company Arla Foods, to develop and implement a strategy to introduce low emission Bio-LNG fuel for its heavy goods vehicle fleet across its European operations. The initiative supports Arla’s U.K. Logistics target of a 25 per cent reduction in CO2 emissions by 2020 within the areas of production, transport and packaging.

At the new Aylesbury dairy, the fresh milk processing facility, Arla plans to convert its entire fleet of vehicles to dual-fuel; with the first 10 dual-fuel conversion trucks running on Bio-LNG this month. As part of this collaboration, Gasrec will supply bio-LNG and provide refuelling station infrastructure at the Aylesbury site matched to the number of trucks converted to use it.

Steve Wright Logistics Project Facilitator for Arla Foods, said: “Arla are pleased to have Gasrec as a business partner, we look forward to developing our Bio-LNG refuelling infrastructure at Aylesbury and are confident that Gasrec are in an ideal position to deliver.”

Ben Sawford, Gasrec’s Chief Commercial Officer, said: “Sustainability and green issues are critical to Arla Foods and it is a pleasure to be helping such an enlightened company to develop strategies for reducing both cost and carbon emissions from their transport operations. As our network and operations expand further, I am confident many other companies will see the rewards of converting HGV fleets to bio-fuels – benefiting both the environment and their balance sheets.”
