Power Trucks with Trash

Thu, Apr 7th, 2011

Dane County First in State to Fill up County Vehicles with Landfill Gas thanks to ANGI Energy Systems.

While prices at the pump continue to climb, Dane County is using new technology to fill-up some of its vehicles for around 20-cents a gallon.

The county, in partnership with several private companies that specialize in turning trash into bio-gas, have installed technology at the Dane County landfill that turns landfill gas into compressed natural gas (CNG).  Over the next several weeks, a number of Dane County parks and public works trucks will be converting over to using this cleaner burning, less expensive bio-fuel.
