Public CNG Station Opens on Honda’s Ohio Property

Honda’s continuing efforts to minimize the environmental impact of its operations took a major step forward today with the opening of a compressed natural gas (CNG) fueling station on its property in Marysville, Ohio.

The station, which was designed, constructed and will be operated by Trillium CNG, is the first public CNG station on a Honda property in North America. The fully automated station is intended to provide service to those that have already adopted the use of CNG. Additionally, Honda wants to encourage and facilitate its suppliers and logistical partners to adopt and expand the use of CNG in the trucks used in support of Honda operations.

"Honda considers the environmental impact of every aspect of our operations and this new CNG station will help reduce the impact of the delivery to our plants in Ohio of more than eight million parts each day," said Tom Shoupe, executive vice president and chief operating officer, Honda of America Mfg., Inc. "For those carriers utilizing CNG trucks, and by encouraging more to do so, this new station will make a significant impact on emissions, and nicely complements the many environment efforts we make with our own manufacturing operations."
