Mon, Aug 5th, 2013

Compressed natural gas is catching on in Florida as fuel for truck fleets - but obsticles to more widespread use remain.

In January, beer distributor, J.J. Taylor of Tampa announced it would begin delivering beer to some of its Florida customers in trucks powered by compressed natural gas. The company has CNG fueling stations in Tampa (ANGI station equipment) and says it will build additional stations in Fort Myers.

At Waste Management of Florida, spokeswoman Dawn McCormick says the garbage hauler has 148 trucks running of compressed natural gas and will have 211 by the end of 2014. Waste Management has opened fueling stations in Pompano Beach,Venice and Fort Walton Beach (ANGI station equipment) and plans to open one this year in Tampa (ANGI station equipment).

Meanwhile, several municipalites in Florida are looking into ways to use CNG-fueled vahicles to cut costs and contribute to a cleaner environment. In Leon County, the school district has begun changing its fleet to buses that run on CNG and partnered with Miami's Nopetro on a CNG fueling station (ANGI station equipment).
