Bus refuelling station opens

A permanent fuel station for a fleet of buses running on gas produced by food waste has opened in Bristol.

The £960,000 station in Bedminster will serve the city’s 22 biomethane gas-powered buses, providing fuel storage and easier refilling at the pumps.

Biomethane is a natural gas produced by breaking down organic materials such as food waste and manure.

The UK’s first ‘Bio-Bus’ — powered by sewage as well as food waste — launched in Bristol in November 2014.
