Penske Truck Leasing and Penske Logistics were among the companies that celebrated Earth Day 2015 and sustainability advancements being made in the transportation sector. The setting in Pottsville, Pennsylvania, was the grand opening of a Trillium CNG fueling station, with Wegmans Food Markets; NFI, a supply chain solutions provider; and Gladstein, Neandross and Associates (GNA), clean transportation and energy consultants.
Trillium unveiled a Class-8 public accessible compressed natural gas (CNG) fueling station in the Highridge Business Park. A total of 23 Penske Truck Leasing leased CNG alternative fuel heavy-duty trucks will be fueled by Penske Logistics, NFI and Wegmans at this location.
The replacement of 23 diesel-powered tractors with CNG-powered tractors will result in a 1.25 million pound annual reduction in CO2 emissions. This significant reduction in emissions is equivalent to the annual emissions of over 150 homes
