TruStar Energy, a developer of compressed natural gas (CNG) fueling stations, has completed the construction of its 250th CNG fueling station. Located in Plainfield, Ind., the milestone station is for the United Parcel Service.
This year, TruStar expects to build approximately 35% of the nation’s natural gas refueling stations. Going forward, the company will also embark on growth initiatives of supplying renewable natural gas – sourced from landfills and digesters – to fleets, as well as introducing new products for smaller fleets.
“Natural gas as a transportation fuel has proven to be a great success story for fleets – both economically and environmentally – and the communities they serve with quieter trucks and cleaner air,” says Adam Comora, CEO of TruStar Energy. “TruStar Energy is extremely proud of our role in that success story and our dedicated team of men and women that continue to drive change in the industry.
“As we look into 2019 and beyond, we are excited to build on that success by expanding our renewable natural gas offerings to our customers, which drives even more economic benefits and drastically enhances the sustainability benefits of using natural gas,” Comora adds.
In related news, earlier this month, Fortistar, the parent company of TruStar Energy, announced the acquisition of two RNG landfill facilities and several other facilities that will enter construction this year.
“Our plan is to sustainably expand and decarbonize America’s transportation fuel market, and TruStar Energy will play a major role in making this happen,” notes Mark Comora, CEO of Fortistar and chairman of TruStar Energy. “We are closing the RNG supply loop as a vertically integrated company, extracting it from landfills and moving it into natural gas vehicles and trucks.”
