“The expansion of our CNG fueling infrastructure will make compressed natural gas available to a greater number of fleets traveling busy commercial trucking routes,” Trillium CNG president Mary Boettcher said in a release.

“New stations will contribute to making natural gas the preferred fuel of choice in the U.S.,” she said.

‘Based on Customers’ Demands’

“The site locations are based on customers’ demands that CNG stations be built near their key shipping lanes off of major interstate highways,” the company says.

Trillium CNG describes its core business as providing “ultra-fast” CNG fueling for heavy-duty fleets. A patented hydraulic intensifier is said to enable fill times comparable to those of diesel.

Trillium’s business model for public access stations “consists of securing a fuel purchase agreement with an anchor customer for each station location.”

Trillium summarizes its fueling station plan as follows: Alabama (two stations), Arizona (two), Arkansas (two), California (three), Colorado (one), Florida (seven), Georgia (four), Illinois (six), Indiana (five), Iowa (two), Kansas (one), Kentucky (four), Louisiana (three), Maryland (one), Michigan (two), Minnesota (five), Mississippi (one), Missouri (two), Nebraska (one), Nevada (one), New York (four), North Carolina (two), North Dakota (one), Ohio (eight), Pennsylvania (six), South Carolina (two), Tennessee (four), Texas (14), and Wisconsin (five).
