Gasrec and B&Q are working together to create a greener fleet with 50 dual fuel lorries powered by Bio-LNG.
The eco-friendly fuel used to power the lorries comprises 60% biomethane, the natural green source of renewable energy produced from organic matter such as household food waste and sewage.
B&Q is committed to reducing its CO2 emissions from business travel and haulage to 50 percent by 2023*. Its new Dual Stock Holding Distribution Facility in Swindon, allows B&Q to hold the same product in the north and south of the UK, greatly reducing the number of miles travelled to store by its lorries.
B&Q has introduced the new dual fuel tractor units at the facility following a successful trial last year. The 25 Mercedes and 25 Volvo units are powered by Gasrec’s Bio-LNG – a proprietary blend of liquid biomethane (LBM) and liquified natural gas (LNG).
The retailer has also received a planning consent to invest in its own biomethane gas filling station at the Swindon Distribution Centre. The facility will be supplied, serviced and maintained by Gasrec.
