Honda Opens Its Second CNG Fueling Station in Ohio
Honda has opened a CNG fueling station on its property in Troy, Ohio. The CNG station, which was designed, constructed and will be operated by Trillium CNG, is the second public CNG station located on a Honda property in North America, following one opened at Honda of America Mfg. in Marysville, Ohio in August. The station will feature two Class 8 dispensers for over-the-road carriers and can also serve customers who drive CNG-fueled passenger cars as well.
“The American Honda Parts and Service Division is pleased to partner with Trillium on a Natural Gas fueling option at our Troy, Ohio site,” Steven Bailey, Vice President, Parts Operations. “We have been using CNG in California with great success, and testing it in Texas as well.”
The fully automated station is intended both to provide service to those that have already adopted the use of CNG, and to encourage and facilitate suppliers and logistics partners to adopt and expand its use in the trucks used in support of Honda operations.
As part of its overall vision to reduce total company CO2 emissions by 50 percent by the year 2050, Honda is working to minimize the environmental impact of its parts distribution operations through its “green fleet” programs. The program is part of a strategy that has seen Honda reduce the CO2 emissions intensity of its parts shipments by 37 percent since 2009.
