DeKalb County sanitation trucks are switching to compressed natural gas (CNG), and the source of the fuel will be the landfill that is the destination point for the trucks and their cargo. In a very literal sense, DeKalb County sanitation vehicles will be powered by the trash that they are hauling.
Energy Systems Group joined DeKalb County CEO Burrell Ellis to celebrate the grand opening of a new CNG station at the Seminole Road Landfill at Clevemont Road. The CNG fuel from the pumps comes straight from DeKalb’s Renewable Fuels Facility, which is a renewable natural gas (RNG) processing facility designed, built and operated by Energy Systems Group (ESG), a leading energy services provider.
The renewable natural gas not used as CNG at the Clevemont Road fueling station will be injected into the natural gas pipeline and transported to other CNG fueling stations throughout the Atlanta metro area.
