HayDay Farms Converts to Clean Fuel With ALT LNG
Applied LNG Technologies USA, LLC ("ALT") announced an agreement to supply liquefied natural gas (LNG) to HayDay Farms(TM) for use in their new fleet of state-of-the-art LNG fueled trucks used in the distribution of their feed products and in port delivery for overseas shipping.
HayDay Farms is committed to the improvement of the environment and has replaced its fleet of diesel trucks with units that utilize clean-burning LNG fuel. The use of LNG will help to reduce harmful emissions of smog-forming NOx by more than 30 percent and Greenhouse Gas emissions by more than 20 percent.
While these clean-burning LNG trucks will significantly reduce the amount of harmful emissions emitted into the air, they will significantly reduce HayDay Farm's distribution costs and allow their vehicles to run more efficiently and with less maintenance. With a significant cost advantage, fleet operators report a 30 percent or better operational cost savings when running LNG trucks in place of diesel units. HayDay Farms expects to see similar results.
HayDay Farms is a highly dependable supplier of quality feed products for foreign and domestic dairy and beef cattle and show and stock horses. With more than 12,000 acres of farmland and 40,000 tons of storage capacity, HayDay Farms grows, harvests, and stores its own product before distributing to Japan, Korea, Taiwan, and throughout the United States. Future expansion is slated for China and Europe.
"Our success is due in part to selecting the right partners and we believe ALT will play an integral role as we continue to convert our operations to environmentally responsible methods," said Lyndon Ichida, President of HayDay Farms. "Given the amount of transport our company manages, it is important to HayDay Farms to put systems in place that help protect the environment and that help to improve our own financial bottom line."
"HayDay farms represents the next generation of LNG fleet operators," said Kevin Markey, President of ALT. "They converted their fleet voluntarily to take advantage of the significant cost savings of LNG over diesel -- while at the same time assisting in reducing our dependence on foreign oil and reducing greenhouse emissions."
ALT's production facility located in Topock, Arizona is wholly owned by Arizona LNG, LLC, sister company to ALT, and is a subsidiary of PNG Ventures, Inc. (OTCBB: PNGX). The Company produces and markets liquefied natural gas (LNG). The Company is focused on meeting the growing demand for alternative fuels in the domestic market.
