BioCNG, LLC Announces Expansion of St. Landry Parish Solid Waste District BioCNG™ System to Include Mother-Daughter Fuel Station

MADISON, WI--(Marketwired - Mar 3, 2015) - BioCNG, LLC announced that the St. Landry Parish Solid Waste Disposal District's BioCNG Vehicle Fuel Project, 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 this "mother-daughter" BioCNG station format -- the first of its kind in the country.

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 expanded project will also provide BioCNG fuel to additional St. Landry Parish clients.

St. Landry Parish Solid Waste Disposal District executive director Katry Martin, said, "The fact that the hauler that delivers waste to the Parish landfill will fuel its trucks with the biogas generated from the landfill is a true example of the power of renewable energy sources and a preview of the future of biogas."

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.

Matt Davies, president of BioCNG, LLC, said, "We are proud to have been chosen by the Parish to expand the current BioCNG fueling station. It will provide another economic fuel choice to the Parish and to the local waste hauler providing service to the Parish."
