Gasrec will construct the station near the M49, M4 and M5 motorways and will be able to refuel almost 700 vehicles a day with its bio-LNG.

Bio-LNG is a combination of liquefied natural gas (LNG) and liquid biomethane (LBM).

It is a natural, green source of renewable energy produced from organic matter such as household food waste.

When used in place of diesel, Bio-LNG can reduce fuel costs, reduces carbon dioxide emissions by up to 35%, 90% of particulate matter emissions, and 60% of nitrogen oxide.

Gasrec commercial development manager Doug Leaf said, "At Avonmouth we will have fuel available from October and over the coming months will be working with major retailers and logistics companies wishing to build their fleets of bio-LNG fuelled vehicles."
