Drew West, Chief Executive Officer of American Natural Gas reports that the Liverpool station plans to meet the demand in the region for compressed natural gas with a strategic location near the New York State Thruway.
“Our customers are helping drive our expansion, as we continue to hear and respond to their needs for alternative fuel infrastructure across New York State,” said West. “This facility supports our customers with a strong addition to our network of stations and will offer easy on-and-off highway access for class 8 vehicles. It also creates new opportunities for fleets interested in CNG, which will now have convenient access to the cleaner, safer and more affordable fuel.”
American Natural Gas reports that natural gas is the cleanest burning alternative fuel with the capability of powering heavy-duty vehicles such as trucks.
The company also reports that natural gas is abundant in the country, with trucks running on the fuel emitting 13 to 21 percent fewer greenhouse gas emissions than vehicles powered by gasoline.
American Natural Gas reports that the company currently owns and operates nearly 40 fueling stations across 13 states in the country.
In the state of New York, American Natural Gas has reportedly developed a network of compressed natural gas stations for long-haul drivers traveling between the areas of Rochester, Buffalo, Syracuse and Albany.
According to American Natural Gas, the Liverpool station has been equipped as a fast fuel station in order to accommodate high-capacity and large volume users.
