Waste Fleet Adding Natural Gas Vehicles, TruStar Energy PFS


Waste and recycling company Basin Disposal Inc. will be taking delivery of a Portable Fuel System (PFS) from TruStar Energy to support the rollout of heavy-duty natural gas vehicles (NGVs).

TruStar's PFS – a self-contained, compressor-redundant compressed natural gas (CNG) production system that yields approximately 66 DGE of CNG per hour – will be installed at Basin Disposal's headquarters in Pasco, Wash. The CNG refueling equipment is expected to be delivered in March 2014 and serve an initial four NGVs.

‘Basin Disposal's choice of the PFS will provide them with low-cost fuel at their location without the additional expense of a traditional 'brick and mortar' permanent station,’ says Scott Edelbach, vice president of TruStar Energy.

‘Economics was the primary driver behind looking at CNG,’ adds Darrick Dietrich, president of Basin Disposal. ‘CNG presents a cost savings, as well fuel-price stability. These are major factors that will benefit our rate payers.’

The company is aiming to have eight CNG-powered garbage trucks in its fleet by the end of 2014.
