TRILLIUM AND HONDA PLAN CNG STATION NEAR MARYSVILLE AUTO PLANT
Honda of America Mfg. announced it will install a CNG station on its Marysville Auto Plant property in Marysville, Ohio. The CNG station, which will be designed, constructed and operated by Trillium CNG, will be the first public CNG station located on a Honda property in North America. The station will feature three dispensers for large Class 8 trucks and a separate dispenser for passenger and light-duty vehicles. The station will be located at the interchange of Route 33 and Route 739. “A major barrier to our carriers and suppliers adopting the use of CNG as a fuel is the lack of convenient fueling stations close to Honda facilities,” said Jim Wehrman, Honda senior vice president. “By providing an accessible fueling option, we hope that our logistical partners will more closely consider the benefits of using CNG.” Through its “green factory” and “green purchasing” programs, Honda is working to minimize the environmental impact of its manufacturing operations, including the upstream impacts of producing and shipping parts for vehicles produced at Honda plants.
