TruStar Energy, one of the leading developers of compressed natural gas (CNG) fuelling stations, is proud to announce the grand opening of a CNG fuelling station for Rogue Disposal & Recycling, Inc.
The CNG fuelling station, which will be known as 'Rogue Green Fuels, LLC', is located at 1125 Anthony Way in White City, Oregon, and will serve both the solid waste service provider's growing CNG- fuelled fleet, as well as the public.
"We live in a region where the quality of the air we breathe is an everyday concern for our citizens. We believe that clean air is critical to our communities' long term sustainability, quality of life and economic success. To that end, we are proud to be part of an effort to bring greater access to cleaner burning transportation fuels such as compressed natural gas to the Rogue Valley," said Lee Fortier, Engineering Manager, Rogue Disposal. "We are pleased to be partnering with TruStar Energy on this new CNG station."
The company will be using the station to fuel their existing CNG fleet, and anticipates opening their station to the public this fall. This will be one of only three publicly accessible CNG fuelling stations along a 400 mile stretch of the I-5 corridor, between Chico, California and Eugene, Oregon.
"Building out the CNG fuelling infrastructure is a vital piece of the puzzle to making cleaner alternative fuels available to leading companies, such as Rogue Disposal. This station makes both financial and environmental sense for the company," said Scott Edelbach, General Manager of TruStar Energy. "TruStar Energy is proud to support Rogue Disposal's goals to reduce its carbon footprint and bring CNG to the Rogue Valley".
Rogue Disposal's conversion to a CNG fuelled fleet supports the company's commitment to sustainability. Rogue Disposal awarded the CNG fuelling station contract to TruStar Energy because of the company's development and construction process that results in stations being completed on time and under budget. Ground was broken on the station in February 2016.
The fast-fill station has three 200 HP Ariel compressors, packaged by ANGI, a PSB gas dryer, and two ANGI fast-fill dispensers. The station is capable of producing almost 11 gasoline gallon equivalent (GGE) per minute.
CNG is insulated from the price volatility of diesel and gas resulting from international conflicts and events, which in recent years have been responsible for dramatic price fluctuations. As for the environment, CNG-powered engines are clean and quiet; produce 30% less greenhouse gases; and do not need the costly exhaust after-treatment devices and diesel exhaust fluids required for diesel engines. Natural gas engines also have an average of 80 - 90% lower noise decibel level than diesel engines.
