Trustar To Fuel Washington Waste Fleet
TruStar has announced the pending delivery of its Portable Fuel System (PFS) to Basin Disposal, a waste and recycling hauler headquartered in Pasco, Washington. The PFS is scheduled for delivery in March of this year and will be used to fuel four new automated garbage trucks. The TruStar PFS is a self-contained compressor-redundant system that arrives on a small skid and has a 66 diesel-gallon equivalent of fuel per hour capacity “Economics was the primary driver behind looking at CNG,” said Dietrich. “CNG presents a cost savings, as well fuel-price stability. These are major factors that will benefit our rate payers.” Basin Disposal expects to be operational by April 2014 and plans on having eight CNG garbage trucks at their site by the end of 2014.
