Providing Cleaner Fuel
Republic Services in Boise, Idaho built the state’s first public compressed natural gas (CNG) fueling station. The station is home-base for a fleet of compressed natural gas waste and recycling collection trucks.
With this CNG fueling station, Republic Services vehicles and anyone in the Boise area can use a fuel that’s up to 90% cleaner than traditional fuel. CNG has been proven to reduce tailpipe carbon monoxide emissions by 70%, reduce non-methane organic gas as well as nitrogen oxides by 87%, and produce less carbon dioxide per mile than other fossil fuels.
Converting our national fleet of trucks to natural gas will deliver plenty of environmental benefits, including:
• Up to 90% cleaner air
• Tailpipe carbon monoxide emissions reduced by 70%
• Non-methane organic gas as well as nitrogen oxides reduced by 87%
• Less carbon dioxide produced per mile
