Calls for biomethane support grow louder in the UK

ADBA's CEO speaks to Automotive World on the need for government support to encourage biomethane uptake in the UK.

Further calls for government support of biomethane as a transport fuel are emerging from the UK as the country seeks to reduce the environmental impact of its commercial vehicles. The country's Heavy Goods Vehicles (HGVs) contribute 21% of surface transport CO2 emissions, 28% of NOX emissions and 16% of particulate matter emissions. For both long-haul and regional operations, methane gas engine technologies such as CNG, LNG and biomethane have been flagged as having notable potential to reduce emissions. However, for biomethane in particular, lack of infrastructure is holding back uptake. Automotive World spoke to Charlotte Morton, Chief Executive of the Anaerobic Digestion and Biogas Association (ADBA), about what is needed to ensure further uptake.
