Hatboro-based Delaware Valley Concrete has already deployed the first of five ready-mix trucks in the company’s initial step to convert its entire fleet of 88 trucks to natural gas. This fleet will fuel at Clean Energy’s growing public-access CNG station network in the State.
“We are proud to be the first company in Pennsylvania to fuel ready-mix trucks with natural gas. This innovative approach to using a domestic and cleaner-burning fuel is yet another way we continue to serve our community in an environmentally-sustainable way,” said Mario DiLiberto, president of Delaware Valley Concrete.
Once fully-deployed, the fleet is forecasted to consume approximately 700,000 DGEs of CNG per year which is expected to reduce greenhouse gases by 1,622 metric tons annually. This is approximately the equivalent of removing 335 passenger cars from the road each year.
Moreover, Clean Energy’s President and CEO Andrew J. Littlefair commented: “CNG ready-mix concrete trucks are adding incremental fuel volume to our existing station network as seen in Pennsylvania. We’re pleased to see this diversification across market segments as natural gas finds more applications on America’s roads.”
