Trillium, a provider of alternative fuels systems and renewable fuels, is adding two public compressed natural gas fueling stations to its California network that will be accessible by heavy-duty vehicles operating in the state’s central valley.
The new CNG stations will feature two fast-fill dispensers. Slated to open in the first quarter of the year, the stations will add to Trillium’s network of more than 30 private and public locations in California.
Houston-based Trillium designed and built the CNG stations at two Love’s Travel Stops, in Lost Hills and Tehachapi. The stations will offer renewable natural gas fueling capabilities to fleet customers. Produced entirely from organic waste streams, RNG is a low-carbon fuel that is interchangeable with pipeline-quality natural gas and which reduces greenhouse gas emissions 40-125%, depending on the feedstock, compared with diesel.
Gemini Motor Transport, the primary fuel carrier for Love’s Travel Stops, will fuel its growing CNG fleet of tractor-trailers, which use the new Cummins Westport Low NOx 12-liter natural gas engine, with RNG from the new locations, as well as an existing station in Tulare.
Trillium is a member of the Love’s Family of Companies. — Transport Topics
