Kalmbach Feeds is a leading innovator in the animal feed industry and has been producing and distributing nutritional products throughout the eastern half of the United States. The station is part of a new venture, Kalmbach Clean Fuels, LLC, and will support Kalmbach’s new CNG-powered feed distribution trucks. The strategic location of the station is near the intersection of US 30 and US 23.
It will be a fast-fill station and it will be finished by November. The station will be working on 24 hour basis and will be ready to attend two vehicles simultaneously.
“Regarding CNG, there has always been the discussion of whether to buy CNG trucks – or wait until there were fueling stations available – the classic ‘chicken or the egg’ dilemma. The trucking industry needs leaders who are willing to invest in new technology,” said Rausch, adding, “Kalmbach Feeds is stepping forward to develop that infrastructure to move the industry forward.”
The company is decided boost the CNG use: Paul Kalmbach believes that “American natural gas has the potential to change the world’s energy paradigm and is leading the Kalmbach Companies to be an integral piece of this new solution”. What is more, Rausch said that Kalmbach Feeds is planning to transition the entire fleet to either dedicated CNG or a combination of CNG / dual-fuel powered vehicles within 10 years.
