Paragon Foods, an independently owned food distributor in southwestern Pennsylvania, has announced its first truck to be powered by compressed natural gas (CNG).
The bi-fuel tractor-trailer vehicle, which is California EPA Air Resources Board certified,
will be used to make deliveries to customers. The vehicle will primarily be fueled at one of two publicly available CNG fueling stations within the region – one at Pittsburgh's Strip District and the other in Crafton Borough.
“CNG provides a significant reduction in greenhouse gas emissions and is less expensive than gasoline – making the vehicle a sound business decision,” says Ron Becker, Paragon Foods' senior vice president of finance and operations.
