Trillium CNG and Mirabito Energy Products held a ribbon-cutting ceremony on Sept. 17 to commemorate the grand opening of a newly constructed compressed natural gas (CNG) fueling station at 90 Barlow Road in Kirkwood, New York.
Those who attended the event included Mary Boettcher, president of Trillium CNG; Joe Mirabito, CEO of Mirabito Energy Products; Gino Porter, regional fleet manager for Frito Lay; Terry Wood, CEO of Willow Run Foods; and John Bernardo, deputy county executive of Broome County.
"We are proud to partner with Mirabito Energy, Willow Run Foods and Frito-Lay, who recognize the importance of making CNG available in the Binghamton area," said Boettcher.
"We recognize the need to offer customers a cleaner, more cost-effective fuel alternative and are pleased to partner with Trillium CNG," said Mirabito. "The local energy company invested in the new station with Trillium CNG to provide fleets in the area a lower cost fuel alternative."
The CNG station is a public access Class 8 fueling station that will operate 24 hours a day, seven days a week and will use Trillium CNG's proprietary fast-fill hydraulic intensifier compressor. There are three fueling lanes today with expansion for an additional two lanes as demand increases.
