Birmingham Airport Breaks Ground on CNG Refueling Station

The Birmingham-Shuttlesworth International Airport (BHM) in Alabama has broken ground on a new compressed natural gas (CNG) fueling station.

According to a Twitter update from BHM, the facility will be used to fuel Birmingham Airport Authority vehicles and will also be open to the public.

The authority was awarded a grant for the approximately $2.5 million initiative through the Federal Aviation Administration’s Voluntary Airport Low Emissions (VALE) Program. The airport authority is also replacing its diesel shuttle buses and one maintenance vehicle with CNG vehicles.
