Gasrec is the leading supplier of liquefied natural gas (LNG) fuel for road transport in North West Europe.  They supply LNG to their network of refuelling stations, where it can also be dispensed as CNG for lighter commercial vehicles, buses and refuse vehicles.

As a pioneer in the supply of liquefied gas fuel to the transport sector, Gasrec has successfully secured funding from a range of UK and EU government grant programmes, including through the Technology Strategy Board and TEN-T (Trans-European Transport Networks) Executive Agency.

The company is in the process of developing a number of strategic station locations and is working with existing and new customers to extend its refuelling network to take account of the growing number of natural gas vehicles and the potential for market growth.
