IGS Station in Marengo to Fuel Renergy’s Organics-Hauling Trucks
Ohio’s Renergy and IGS CNG Services have opened a new compressed natural gas fueling station at the intersection of Interstate 71 and Ohio State Route 61 in Marengo, north of Columbus. “The station broke ground in May 2015 and is now open to anyone driving CNG fueled vehicles,” states a joint release. updated August 24 & 26
“The strategic location of the station off I-71 ensures heavy trucks and passenger vehicles traveling the corridor between Cleveland and Columbus will have convenient access to CNG without range anxiety,” the firms say.
Renergy, which operates ten CNG-fueled tractors that haul organic materials, is the anchor tenant for the unmanned station, which is designed to serve all CNG vehicles up to and including Class 8 trucks. The facility has an ANGI compression package supporting two Gilbarco dispensers with four hoses serving two fueling lanes. Fuel can be dispensed at up to 15 GGE/gasoline gallon equivalents per minute.
The new Marengo station is open 24/7. All major credit cards are accepted as well as Voyager, Wright Express, FuelMan, and Comdata cards – and the IGS Fleet Card.

Renergy is headquartered in Marengo and has offices in Phoenix and in Palo Alto, Calif. The firm uses anaerobic digestion to repurpose agricultural, food, industrial and municipal waste to produce renewable electricity, renewable natural gas, soil nutrients and reclaimed water.
“It became immediately clear in our initial discussions with IGS that we were closely aligned in our approach to business, commitment to the community, and strong belief in developing alternative energy resources,” Renergy COO Mike Oberfield says in the CNG station announcement. “It’s a partnership that made sense from the start.”
