DALLAS — Clean Energy Fuels Corp. showcased its station that sells both liquefied and compressed natural gas as part of a May 7 tour at the tail end of this week’s ACT Expo.
The station is on the property of bulk and tank carrier Dillon Transport, which has an adjacent terminal and gets natural gas for its trucks at a discount, said Matt Feighner, Clean Energy’s Dallas-based regional vice president of its national truck team.
Dillon also pockets a portion of the proceeds of the fuel sold at the public-access facility, he added. Based in Burr Ridge, Illinois, Dillon is the 19th largest tank/bulk carrier in the United States and Canada, according to the Transport Topics Top 100 listing.
The station, which is not connected with a natural-gas pipeline, makes CNG from LNG via compressors. Such facilities are generally known as LCNG stations.
