Aldi becomes latest brand to roll out biomethane HGVs

Aldi has become the latest major UK brand to adopt biomethane-fuelled HGVs from CNG Fuels.

The move comes as CNG Fuels announces the opening of its tenth low-carbon HGV refuelling station in Castleford.

According to the company, the number of bio-CNG powered trucks on the road has doubled in the past year alone.

It says that renewable biomethane – derived from food waste and manure – is the lowest carbon alternative fuel to diesel available to HGVs.

Aldi joins a number of other household brands, including Royal Mail, Waitrose, and Warburtons to use the Bio-CNG supplier’s newest site.

“Aldi is committed to reducing our carbon footprint, and adopting bio-CNG HGVs is another step forward in our plans to cut emissions from our UK fleets,” said Liz Fox, national corporate responsibility director, UK at Aldi. “CNG Fuels’ latest station in Castleford opens the door to major transport networks into the North East, and their growing network will only continue to extend the number of low carbon deliveries that we can make across the country every day.”
