Tri County Announces the Addition of a New CNG Fueling Station & Trucks

From the Tri County Website: "The new CNG Station is a compressed natural gas fueling station located onsite at Tri-County Industries, Inc. Gas emissions from Seneca Landfill, Inc. (TCI's sister company) are captured and converted into a usable form of gas, which is being used to power the Vogel Holding, Inc. fleet of CNG vehicles (as well as other public and private vehicles).

But how does a landfill become a renewable energy resource? When organic matter ends up in a landfill, it breaks down over time. As it breaks down, it generates gases, including methane. Methane is a potent greenhouse gas capable of contributing to global warming. This gas needs to be diverted from entering the atmosphere....

The landfill gas is currently recovered through a system of gas extraction wells populated throughout the landfill. The gas is processed through a variety of systems removing contaminants and moisture. The methane leaves the plant as clean, usable biogas.

Vogel's first CNG fueling station opened at Seneca Landfill, Inc. in 2019. Both fueling stations are now open for public and private use. These fueling stations provide the opportunity for smaller local haulers to utilize an established CNG fueling station, thus making it easier for local haulers and other fleet operators to also convert to CNG....

In October, TCI added four new CNG vehicles to [their] fleet. The new additions consist of two residential and two commercial trucks.

These new vehicles are part of a growing fleet of CNG trucks within the Vogel Holding, Inc. family of companies. Together, the Vogel companies have 62 CNG trucks on the road, 16 of which are at Tri-County Industries, Inc."
