Advanced Disposal reports the opening of its seventh compressed natural gas fueling station – a TruStar Energy facility in Macon, Ga. The station currently supports 15 CNG-fueled trucks – Peterbilt vehicles with Heil bodies. updated October 19
“This number will increase as the company replaces retiring diesel trucks once their useful life has expired,” states a release.
“Approximately 12% of our collection routes run on CNG,” Advanced Disposal CEO Richard Burke said in a release, adding, “We will increase our CNG fleet to 15% by the end of 2015.”
The Macon CNG station was a $1.6 million investment and according to the Advanced Disposal announcement is the only multi-truck CNG station in the metro area. About a fourth of Advanced Disposal’s collection routes in the Macon area run on CNG.
The Macon station has twin 200-horsepower ANGI Energy-packaged compressors with 40 time-fill hoses and provision for 40 more, says Advanced Disposal procurement VP Chad Mark.
Advanced Disposal’s sixth CNG station, also built by TruStar, opened last year in Detroit (F&F, June 3, 2014).
