BioCNG to Expand Renewable Natural Gas Project in Louisiana

On Tuesday, BioCNG announced that the St. Landry Parish Solid Waste Disposal District’s BioCNG Vehicle Fuel Project located in Louisiana, which was fully commissioned in 2012, will be expanded to include an additional BioCNG system and a remote CNG fueling station. BioCNG, which partnered with the District to develop the original system, has been selected to design, install, and commission the “mother-daughter” BioCNG station format. The expansion is part of a contract between St. Landry Solid Waste and Progressive Waste Systems. In exchange for continuation of its existing waste hauling contract with the District, Progressive Waste has agreed to purchase new CNG-powered trucks, and will have access to the increased BioCNG generated from the expanded system.

The St. Landry Parish BioCNG Vehicle Fuel Project received the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s Landfill Methane Outreach Program (LMOP) 2012 Project of the Year award. The system was originally designed to serve public works trucks and the sheriffs’ vehicle fleet. Now, with a new fuel purchaser, the District will increase on-site BioCNG production and provide an off-site CNG fueling station. The District can transport the BioCNG to the off-site location in a compressed gas tube trailer. For more information, contact sales and business manager Kay Turgeson at 630.410.7202.
