JOLIETTE, Que. – EBI has opened the doors of its fourth compressed natural gas (CNG) fueling station in Quebec, in what it says was in the context of the recent climate change agreement signed in Paris.
The new station is located in the Lanaudiere region on Highway 158 near Highway 31 next to Techno Diesel, the largest service centre for trucks and trailers in the area.
“The business relationship between EBI and Techno Diesel has lasted for several decades and this project raises that cooperation to another level,” said Caroline Thuot, general manager of Techno Diesel. “In fact, interest in the use of natural gas has multiplied in recent years and Techno Diesel customers are no exception to this trend.”
EBI said the station is part of its development strategy, which aims to continue in the coming years.
“We offer a service that is unique in Quebec,” said Olivier Sylvestre, manager of natural gas transportation development for EBI. “In addition to producing renewable natural gas, we offer our clients turnkey solutions for CNG fueling and CNG truck leasing. We have the expertise to accompany our clients in transitioning their fleet of trucks to this fuel of the future.”
EBI has produced renewable natural gas using biogases extracted from it technical landfill site since 2003, and has more than 110 trucks running on natural gas, a fuel source it says can reduce greenhouse gas emissions by more than 90% compared to diesel.
