Gasrec Fuelling Station Makes Case For Gas

Posted on: Thursday, 23 May 2013 by Mike Webb

Friday saw the long-awaited official opening of the Gasrec Bio-LPG fuelling station in Daventry.

A crowd of more than 100 operators, customers and staff came together to see the station in full operation; which is Britain's first bio-LPG plant; the first of several that Gasrec is planning to open over the coming months.

There were presentations from a range of organisations including Tesco, Kuehne and Nagel and Brit European setting out the difficult journeys each have undertaken to reform their operations for significant environmental and economic benefits; and the critical importance of gas fuel to continuing this improvement.

Transport Minister Norman Baker conducted the opening formalities, and having addressed the audience was quizzed regularly about the Government's plans for three of the key issues affecting the future of gas guel: that gas is the only alternative to diesel trunking, a genuine national refuelling infrastructure is required to presuade companies to invest in the tech and a failure to extend the differential between diesel and gas will seriously prejudice the attractiveness of an investment in gas technology.

On these last two points in particular; FTA will be pushing hard over the coming weeks to secure a clearer future for gas, and you will be able to read about this work in detail on this blog.
