Agility Fuel Solutions, a wholly owned subsidiary of Hexagon Composites ASA, is taking steps to adopt sustainable solutions for its own transportation needs.
Agility will soon be using its own compressed natural gas (CNG)-powered Class 8 truck to haul cylinders, systems and parts between its Salisbury, N.C.; Lincoln, Neb.; and Fontana, Calif., locations. Agility is also requesting its supply-chain partners prioritize clean fuels when hauling products on its behalf.
In addition, the company will be leasing a hydrogen vehicle for use by visitors to its Costa Mesa, Calif., headquarters. Agility also operates an internal fleet of medium-duty service and delivery trucks that run on propane autogas, and since 2013, Agility’s Lincoln facility has owned a CNG-powered SUV for local transportation needs.
Agility’s first-year goal is to have 10% of internal transportation needs satisfied by clean fuels, which would reduce the company’s carbon footprint by approximately 225,000 pounds of carbon dioxide.
“Thanks to the creativity and energy of many members of the Agility team, we’re making real strides to reduce emissions in our operations,” says Seung Baik, president of Agility. “This is another good step that furthers our commitment to minimize waste and pollution and to be good stewards of our planet.”
