Success Stories

Waste Management (CNG Refuse Fleet) - Example Best Practice
With 30,000 collection and support vehicles on the road throughout North America, Waste Management is committed to reducing the environmental impacts of these vehicles. Waste Management is a national leader in the use of alternative fuels for heavy-duty trucks, and it is committed to transitioning diesel fleets to CNG. The fleet currently includes more than 1,400 natural gas trucks, the largest of its kind in the waste industry. In 2012, natural gas vehicles will represent 80% of the company’s annual new truck purchases. Waste Management will continue to replace the fleet with natural gas vehicles and may accelerate replacement through a number of initiatives.

 

Manhattan Beer Distributors - Example Best Practice
Manhattan Beer Distributors, headquartered in the Bronx, New York operates a fleet of more than 500 trucks, vans, sedans, and forklifts. The company initiated a CNG vehicle program in 2001 with a pilot fleet of 15 trucks and one station. It now has 45 CNG trucks and three CNG stations. The driving force for the project was Manhattan Beer’s desire to prove the viability of dedicated CNG engines in a private delivery fleet application and reduce the pollution in the South Bronx community, in which it is headquartered.
