USA Waste of California CNG/LNG Refueling Station Upgrade
USA Waste of California is upgrading a liquefied natural gas (LNG) fueling station in the city of Corona in Riverside County to increase the capacity of LNG output and to provide compressed natural gas (CNG) dispensing capabilities. This station supports a waste hauler fleet of 100 plus trucks and will add capacity for public vehicles along the regional goods movement corridor Interstate 1-5 and California highway 91.
The Energy Commission is providing $489,040 in Alternative and Renewable Fuel and Vehicle Technology program funds.

USA Waste of California Inc is the grant recipient and is a subsidiary of Waste Management, Inc. They will manage the construction and operation of the station.
With these upgrades, the LNG fuel output is expected to rise by 50%. LNG fuel reduces greenhouse gas emissions by approximately 15 % when compared to diesel.
