Alternative Fuel Center to open at O’Hare International Airport

By Rosalind Rossi, Chicago Sun-Times.

An alternative fuel station will open at O’Hare International Airport in early 2016 offering  taxis, shuttle buses and everyday drivers fast-charging electric stations, alternative fuels and conventional gasoline.

In addition to conventional gasoline, the fueling station will offer compressed natural gas, biodiesel, and fast-charge charging stations for electric vehicles.

According to the aviation department, an increasing number of vehicles using the airport are powered by alternative fuels, including taxis and hotel and rental car shuttles. However, the center also will be open to the general public.
