Project information:

Project Evergreen is a collaboration between CNG Services, Chive Fuels, DHL Supply Chain and KBC Logistics. Evergreen will deploy 31 dual fuel trucks and provide additional publicly accessible liquefied natural gas (LNG) refuelling stations during 2014.

One of the principal benefits of Project Evergreen is the increase of Chive's publically-accessible motorway network of LNG stations from seven to ten, with all stations having vent gas recovery. Further LNG stations will be installed at DHL's Droitwich and KBC's Purfleet depots.
