TruStar Energy Celebrates Grand Opening of CNG Station for Rogue Disposal
TruStar Energy has celebrated the grand opening of a CNG fueling station for Rogue Disposal & Recycling located in White City, Oregon. The CNG station will serve both the solid waste service provider’s growing CNG fleet, as well as the public.
“We believe that clean air is critical to our communities’ long-term sustainability, quality of life and economic success,” said Lee Fortier, Engineering Manager, Rogue Disposal. “We are proud to be part of an effort to bring greater access to cleaner burning transportation fuels like compressed natural gas to the Rogue Valley.”
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 fueling stations along a 400 mile stretch of the I-5 corridor, between Chico, California and Eugene, Oregon.
Rogue has eight CNG-fueled recycling and waste collection trucks in its fleet of 36 vehicles, with three more on order currently. The company plans to complete a total conversion of the fleet over the next eight years.
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 GGEs per minute.
