Waste Management of Alameda County, Inc.
Waste Management of Alameda County, Inc. sought to develop a liquefied natural gas and liquefied compressed natural gas fueling station to support its existing and rapidly expanding private fleet of compressed natural gas-powered solid waste collection and waste transfer vehicles in Alameda County. This critical infrastructure project provides solutions to overcome the significant refueling barrier that has hindered the development and widespread use of natural gas as a transportation fuel in the Bay Area.
The project site, located at Waste Management of Alameda County’s Davis Street Resource Recovery Complex at 2615 Davis Street in the city of San Leandro, California, provides a convenient and affordable source of liquefied natural gas and liquefied compressed natural gas for the Waste Management of Alameda County fleet of transfer tractors that fuel at the facility daily.
The goal of developing a liquefied natural gas and liquefied compressed natural gas fueling station in the San Leandro area along several important local and regional transportation corridors, including United States Interstate 880, Interstate 580, and Interstate 238, was to provide incentive for foods movement operators, municipal fleets, school districts, and water agencies to adopt or expand the use of their natural gas advanced technologies. Another goal was to enable the accelerated replacement of heavy-duty diesel trucks with clean-burning, ultra-low-emission natural gas trucks to stimulate the United States manufacturing base and economy, and assist in the development of a more aggressive “green” automotive industry in the United States. A final goal of this project was to infuse further the Northern California regional natural gas refueling infrastructure with locally produced, ultra-low carbon liquefied natural gas and liquefied compressed natural gas.
