New CNG station under construction in California with PepsiCo’s help
American Natural Gas (ANG) officially breaks ground at their public natural gas station in Modesto, California. This facility, scheduled for completion in January of 2020, will be number 61 for ANG and will be an extension of their prominent infrastructure nationwide, enhancing its ability to create a healthier environment through the use of alternative fuels.
Designed and engineered by ANG’s skillful team of experts, the three-lane, fast fill station will be equipped with leading CNG technology, and will be able to sustain exceedingly fast fill times while providing a superior experience for all customers.
The station is made possible by PepsiCo in conjunction with ANG. Frito Lay, a division of PepsiCo, sets the standard for all American businesses with their first-of-its-kind Showcase for Sustainability. “The project is a first-of-its-kind for PepsiCo and Frito-Lay and is part of California Climate Investments (CCI), a statewide program that puts billions of Cap-and-Trade dollars to work reducing greenhouse gas emissions, strengthening the economy, and improving public health and the environment — particularly in disadvantaged communities,” said PepsiCo.
Car and truck emissions in the San Joaquin Valley are responsible for half of the airborne particulate matter. By fueling with biomethane sourced from local dairy farms, fleets can become carbon net negative well-to-wheel fueling. Innovative technologies combined with biomethane make for natural gas fueling 120% cleaner than the cleanest diesel engine and creates a carbon net negative scenario.
