Marysville Auto Plant, HondaUS – The vehicle-maker is implementing the compressed natural gas (CNG) station at its Marysville Auto Plant as part of broader efforts to reduce CO2 emissions and the environmental impact of its operations.

The CNG station, which will be designed, constructed and operated by Trillium CNG, will be the first such station on Honda property in North America. The fully automated station will feature three Class 8 dispensers for over-the-road carriers and a separate dispenser for passenger and light-duty vehicles.

In addition to providing a service to users of CNG, the installation is intended to encourage suppliers and logistical partners to expand use of the fuel.

“Minimising our environmental footprint is a vital part of Honda’s business strategy and operating philosophy,” said Jim Wehrman, senior vice-president of Honda of America Manufacturing (HAM).
