HARTFORD, Conn., Aug. 26, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- TruStar Energy, a national leader in design and construction of Compressed Natural Gas (CNG) fueling infrastructure, is excited to announce the contract award to design and build a large time-fill fueling station for All Waste, Inc., based in Hartford, Conn.
According to All Waste's Operation Manager, Bob Norton, domestic CNG dovetails with other environmental programs that have been championed by All Waste - one of the largest privately held refuse haulers in the state.
"This goes hand-in-hand with our long-term recycling efforts. We are the leading hauler with regard to recycling volumes being removed from the waste stream," said Norton. "We were the first to implement single-stream recycling in Connecticut, where all the types of paper products and glass and metal can go into a single receptacle. It increased recycling by over 100 percent. In keeping with that, we made the decision to convert to CNG for our larger garbage trucks."
Norton said they currently have 14 dedicated CNG garbage trucks with another 10 on order.
"We run a total of 80 vehicles. Our intent is to convert 60 trucks within a 5-year period," said Norton, adding, "We'll be halfway to that goal by July of 2015. We'll continue to build from there."
Scott Edelbach, Vice President of Sales for TruStar Energy, said All Waste's long-term commitment to the environment strikes a chord with a lot of fleet owners in New England. "All Waste has been involved with CNG for about 18 months and several fleets in the area have since become involved in the CNG movement."
Edelbach said All Waste's time-fill station consists of a single 200 horsepower compressor and 60 time-fill fueling posts. In addition, resources for a second compressor have been installed to allow for quick expansion sometime in 2015.
"Converting from diesel to CNG is a game changer for enhancing the profitability of transportation operations," said TruStar Energy President Adam Comora. "Fuel savings from 30% to 50% create significant value for fleet operators and their partners. Natural gas is better for the environment, better for domestic energy independence and better for the bottom line – truly a win-win-win solution."
Comora said TruStar Energy's growth is being driven by being the preferred partner for companies desiring to convert their fleets from diesel to CNG. Given the significant cost savings, "speed is of the essence" in order to capture these cost savings as quickly as possible. TruStar Energy delivers cost effective and on-time CNG fueling solutions.
Norton said the station should be operational by year's end 2014.
TruStar Energy LLC is the preferred partner for commercial fleets looking to transition their fuel supply from oil to natural gas. TruStar Energy provides a suite of solutions making the transition as simple and easy as possible for the customer. With station builds throughout the US and Canada, TruStar Energy is a recognized leader in providing CNG infrastructure and CNG fueling solutions.

With billions of sensors deployed worldwide, the amount of machine-generated data will soon exceed what our networks can handle. But consumers and businesses will expect seamless experiences and real-time responsiveness. What does this mean for IoT devices and the infrastructure that supports them? More of the data will need to be handled at - or closer to - the devices themselves.
