Burrtec Waste Selects ALT to Supply LNG to Second Location
Applied LNG Technologies USA, LLC ("ALT"), wholly owned subsidiary of PNG Ventures, Inc. (OTCBB:PNGX), today announced an agreement to supply liquefied natural gas (LNG) and fueling equipment to Burrtec Waste and Recycling Services for their fleet of 18 LNG refuse haulers used for residential, municipal, industrial and commercial waste management services at their Palm Desert, California location.
Founded in 1955, the Burrtec Waste family of companies is the largest privately held solid waste management organization in the State of California. Having already converted more than 50 percent of its fleet to either Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG) or Compressed natural Gas (CNG) fuels, the company received recognition, including the Natural Gas Vehicle Coalition Award, for their efforts and commitment to the environment. ALT has provided LNG to Burrtec at its Fontana, California, location for more than five years.
"ALT has been a reliable source of LNG for many years," said Frank Orlett, District Manager of the Burrtec Waste Palm Desert location. "We wanted them to be a part of our Palm Desert operation because they've demonstrated excellence in customer service and provided a dependable supply of quality fuel."
Burrtec Waste's utilization of LNG enables them to honor their commitment to provide the most cost-effective solution while meeting the needs of the communities they serve. Burning LNG reduces harmful emissions of smog-forming NOx by more than 30 percent and Greenhouse Gas emissions by more than 20 percent. Burrtec's use of clean-burning LNG will significantly reduce transportation costs and harmful emissions, allowing their fleet to run more efficiently and with less maintenance.
"Burrtec Waste seeks to utilize the best in technology and environmental efficiencies," said Kevin Markey, President and CEO of ALT. "We're here to help them improve, not only their bottom line, but the environment they operate in. We look forward to growing with them."
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.
