About CNG Fuels

CNG Fuels develops, owns and operates Bio-CNG distribution infrastructure including refuelling stations, trailers and vehicles. We are rolling out a UK wide network of reliable and convenient refuelling facilities to service customer’s vehicle fleets and their off-grid energy needs. Our Bio-CNG is biomethane 100% sourced from food waste, independently verified and approved by the Department for Transport’s Renewable Transport Fuel Obligation (RTFO)


Our public access station rollout provides customers with refuelling infrastructure that is convenient and reliable. These stations are located near the UK’s gas grid infrastructure and close to major transport routes. These gas-grid connected ‘Mother’ stations, can supply gas via trailer direct to customer’s depot based ‘Daughter’ stations.

Customers purchase all of their CNG as 100% renewable biomethane (Bio-CNG) at all of our current and future stations.

We operate both the UK’s highest capacity CNG stations, including the UK’s first CNG refuelling station that is connected to the high pressure natural gas grid.

We are in advanced discussions for more stations located on and off the natural gas grid, so there will be more news of stations under development early in 2017.

To develop a Bio-CNG refuelling network with the capability to service all of the UK’s major trucking routes.

To build a network that is so reliable and dispenses CNG at such a low cost, that Bio-CNG is the only sensible choice for fleet operators.

To see HGV fleets in the UK catch up with international peers by running predominantly on low-emissions, low-cost biomethane.
