American Fueling Systems celebrated the grand opening of its new Alternative Fueling Facility on Oct. 11. This new facility is not only the largest facility in Georgia but is also the first to be located in a high traffic area, according to the company


This facility will offer compressed natural gas and liquefied propane gas to vehicles in the area. Located in Chamblee, Ga., this fueling outlet is open 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.

This facility was built in conjunction with a grant awarded to Clean Cities Atlanta Petroleum Reduction Program by the Department of Energy's National Energy Technology Laboratory.

The program is designed to increase the availability of alternative fuels and the use of alternative fuel vehicles and advanced technology vehicles in Metro Atlanta as a means of reducing U.S. dependence on imported petroleum, increasing fuel economy, reducing emissions and improving air quality.

The opening of this facility will allow Georgia to make a tremendous leap forward in alternative fuels. With the commitment of DeKalb County as well as large private organizations that will use the facility to fuel their new fleet of CNG and LPG vehicles, the demand for cleaner and more cost effective fuels in the region should increase.

AFS is committed to opening at least two additional public fueling locations in Georgia before the end of 2013 along with the multiple private facilities they are building for their customers.
