PetroCard, a fuels distributor, and Waste Management, a provider of comprehensive waste management services, announced the grand opening of a “Clean N’ Green Fuel” compressed natural gas (CNG) fueling station in South Seattle— the first public-access CNG facility in the city.
The Clean N’ Green Fuel partnership began as a natural fit between Waste Management’s need to fill their CNG powered trucks and PetroCard’s expertise in providing self-service fueling stations. Given the growing interest in petroleum alternatives and the need for reduced emissions, PetroCard and Waste Management may look to replicate the joint venture in other parts of the region.
The Clean N’ Green Fuel station will sell CNG to business fleets, including Waste Management, as well as individuals with CNG equipped vehicles. Current pricing at the station is in the range of $1.70-$1.80/GGE.
Our agency supports the use of compressed natural gas vehicles as a strategy to reduce emissions and pollutants leading to improved air quality for our region. This station is an important step to increase access to CNG, ultimately moving us towards a cleaner and healthier environment for residents of the Puget Sound area.—Dennis McLerran, Executive Director of the Puget Sound Clean Air Agency
Waste Management has 108 CNG trucks in their Seattle area fleet.
