It's located at 8924 Lake Road
on property owned by Pilot Flying J Truck Travel Centers.
A grant to help fund the development of the Clean Energy LNG station was awarded to Clean Fuels Ohio by the U.S. Department of Energy, as part of the federal American Recovery and Reinvestment Act stimulus program.
Dillon Transport's temperature-sensitive tanker truck fleets operate throughout the U.S. and Canada, with contract services concentrated east of the Rocky Mountains. The new Ohio station will support Dillon-operated trucks that deliver raw materials to Owens Corning industrial production plants. Owens Corning is a global producer of residential and commercial building materials.
"The opening of this new Clean Energy LNG truck fueling station, the first in the industrial heartland of America, is a major step toward realizing our program to create a national LNG fueling infrastructure that will extend along major truck routes nationwide," says James Harger, chief marketing officer for Clean Energy. "Our efforts to create America's Natural Gas Highway are in direct response to the increasing demand for natural gas fuel as major trucking companies secure and deploy LNG-powered trucks."
