New CNG refueling station for heavy trucks in Salt Lake Valley


Salt Lake County Mayor Ben McAdams and County Fleet Management Director Greg Nuzman unveiled the county’s new CNG fueling station just in time for the start of the winter inversion season in the Salt Lake Valley, Utah.

McAdams said that Fleet Management maintains large diesel trucks that until now have contributed significantly to both CO2 and NOx (nitrogen oxide) emissions—two tailpipe sources of both winter and summer air pollution.

“Switching to cleaner natural gas as a fuel shows that Salt Lake County is doing whatever we can to help lower the number of bad air days in the valley,” said McAdams. “Replacing diesel fuel with CNG is a significant step towards less air pollution and more cost-savings on fuel.”
