Denver Adds CNG Station for Waste Fleet

Denver has its first compressed natural gas (CNG) fueling station to fuel its current fleet of seven waste trucks.

The station, built by Fontana, Calif.-based TruStar Energy, is a large time-fill, fast-fill station, according to a company news release. Denver plans to substantially increase the number of its CNG waste vehicles during the next several years.

The station has the capacity of fueling 136 vehicles simultaneously.

“When people think of Denver, they think of clean air, mountains and blue skies. The completion of the new CNG fueling station is the beginning of the city’s conversion from using diesel to cleaner natural gas,” said Scott Edelbach, TruStar vice president.
