Waste Pro USA Inc. (Longwood, FL) plans to build a new compressed natural gas (CNG) fueling station in Jacksonville, FL next year. The company recently won a 10-year contract extension with the city that includes a commitment to expand recycling and switch its local fleet to CNG. It's also part of the company's $100 million initiative made in Oct. 2011 to ultimately convert its entire fleet to CNG. Company CMO Ron Pecora says its for two reasons: "Economics: Compressed natural gas is less expensive than diesel. And environmental: It's cleaner energy and quieter." Waste Pro has already built a CNG fueling station at its Fort Pierce facility and is converting its fleet there. A similar effort is underway in Atlanta, GA where the company is spending $20 million to build a CNG station and convert its fleet. These efforts are expected to yield fuel savings of up to 40 percent.
