  • Oregon ODOT announces CNG station CMAQ grant awards from 2012 authorized Fed bill

    The CNG station CMAQ grant awards “press release” planned for today showed up in a Bend newspaper at 6:30pm:

    http://www.ktvz.com/news/odot-to-fun...tions/26487240


    SMART 28754 SW Boberg Rd Wilsonville (Fuel Maker Quads)
    (1) Metro 6161 NW 61st Ave Portland (CNG-in-a-BOX)
    (1) Clean Water Services 770 S 1st Ave Hillsboro (renewable gas CNG-in-a-BOX)
    (1) TriMet LIFT door-to-door seniors 16130 SW Merlo Rd Beaverton (private CNG-in-a-BOX)
    Smalley Trucking 1625 W Duke Rd Sutherlin (small, private BAUER)
    Pacific Pride 5146 Old Highway 99 S Roseburg (24/7 cardlock public LARGE DUTY BAUER)*
    Public Works 575 NE 15th St Bend (small, private BAUER)
    (2) Fitz Enterprise 8445 N Kerby Av Portland (public BAUER)

    Only two cities appear to plan public access. Perhaps Wilsonville is on the list in order to install a public CNG dispenser which was promised for the 2012 opening of their Boberg yard. Grant writing success seemed to depend on having a good application writer (private message me for contact info for the Salem writer who won 4 of the 8 above.)

    (1)

    Schedule H, NW Natural (Large 10 gpm flow)

    (2)

    Tens of millions of dollars planned for investment in CNG stations including waste truck refueling to meet smog-mitigation goals in Jackson County, a truck fueling base/advanced transportation tech college program in Linn County, and a public dispenser at the PDX airport were rejected by the ODOT selection committee.

    Correction: A fast-fill Bauer C28.0S is planned for Tyree Oil 144 M St Roseburg (behind Shell 4446 Old Hwy 99). The self-contained unit is designed for c-stores and has a total storage capacity at 4,700 psig of 130 GGE. That equates to a sequential usable storage volume of 46 GGE, or roughly enough capacity to refuel a half dozen Honda Civics before the compressor needs to cycle. It's across the street from an Oregon's UPS hub having about 20 big trucks. UPS is presently operating double trailer CNG trucks as far as Redding in Northern CA.

    Also, Metro in Portland and Public Works in Bend plan to offer public CNG fueling.

Descriptions of some of the CNG station equipment mentioned above follow:

          Rogue Disposal & Recycling of southern Oregon recently introduced a new CNG refuse truck to its fleet. The truck is the second CNG truck in Rogue Disposal’s fleet; the other CNG truck debuted in 2012. The new truck, which is being used for automated residential routes in Medford, makes about 1,000 stops a day for pickups.

          The 2013 Peterbilt 320 features a Cummins ISL-G engine coupled to an Allison RDS-P 6-speed transmission. “Rogue Disposal and Recycling’s overall goal is to be the leading environmental company in Southern Oregon, and the CNG truck allows our company to convert to a cleaner burning fuel which will improve the air quality of the Rogue Valley while lowering our fuel expenses for collection,” said Wendel Smith, Rogue Disposal & Recycling General Manager.

          Shadow Properties and Rogue Disposal have announced the planned construction of a new CNG fueling station in Jackson County to fuel its growing CNG refuse fleet. Dry Creek Landfill, in conjunction with Jackson County, also has completed a feasibility study to determine the economics of using biomethane as a fuel in local fleets.

              16 Mar 2015 in Fleets&Fuels by Rich Piellisch - Portland Oregon City Council has approved a biogas processing and storage facility contract for final design and a CNG fueling station at the Columbia Boulevard Wastewater Treatment Plant (CBWTP) to be operated by the city. The CBWTP is located at 5001 N Columbia Blvd Portland, OR.

              “Environmental Services is exploring several possible uses for the fuel including selling it to a utility company, selling to Portland area garbage haulers to fuel trucks, fueling city vehicles, or fueling trucks that haul bio-solids for land application.” Because of the site layout, the city has decided against a general public access CNG station, according to wastewater engineering manager Paul Suto.

              Portland reckons a cost of $10.9 million to design and construct a biogas processing and storage facility and a CNG fueling station at the CBWTP site, located north of the city. The Environmental Services unit is exploring grants and financial incentives to help reduce project costs (presently, project was not awarded any CMAQ grants.) Construction could start early next year and the facility could be operational by 2017.

              Biogas Currently Used for Heat and Power

              The city says that the CBWTP has long been moving toward 100% biogas re-use. Portland-based Malarkey Roofing Products has been buying biogas to help power its manufacturing for more than 30 years, and currently accounts for about 20% of the CBWTP’s output. Another 20% fuels boilers for building heat and the solids treatment process. In 2009, the CBWTP installed two 850-kilowatt GE-Jenbacher engine-generators that use about 40% of the plant’s biogas as fuel to generate electricity for the wastewater treatment process. About 20% of the facility’s biogas is now flared, but could be processed into some 1,700 gge of CNG per day.

              “Converting biogas to vehicle fuel will re-use practically all the biogas the treatment plant produces,” the city says.

              The design contract is with HDR, who provides architecture, engineering, consulting, construction and related services.

                Trimet in Beaverton cancelled its CNG project for a paratransit yard in Beaverton. It was learned this week that Tyree Oil in Roseburg; City of Bend; and Smalley Trucking in Sutherlin have cancelled their requests for CMAQ matching grant funds.

                  25 March 2015 Pride Disposal of Portland, Ore., will begin deploying new roll-off trucks equipped with McNeilus Truck and Manufacturing's NGEN compressed natural gas (CNG) system.

                  "Cleaner engines and exhaust systems, and reduced maintenance needs are other benefits we experience with the shift to CNG," said Bill Woody, Pride's fleet manager.

                    The first CNG station being built for Portland OR since the State awarded grants in Aug 2013 - turns out to be entirely privately funded! Waste Management has a station planned for 1525 B St Forest Grove, OR. The location is completely useless for travel in the Portland area or through the state - unless one happens to be driving a refuse collection route.

                    As was reported nationwide, the State lost $130M in the last year by not charging enough for health care insurance, but the first payout of the $4M in grants for CNG infrastructure is being now being allocated for the Rogue Disposal CNG station with public access in White City (Medford).

                      Oregon Dept of Transportation was unsuccessful in dispersing $4M in CMAQ grants set aside for CNG stations - other than for the refuse CNG station in White City. The Advanced Transportation Director has moved on to another assignment and any remaining money is expected to be directed to expand the EV charging network in the state. Highlights from a recent report include:

                      - Monthly sales of electric vehicles in Oregon have increased five-fold since 2011, making Oregon one of the top electric vehicle markets in the country.

                      - Since 2011, Oregon has added over 600 public Level 2 charging stations and over 115 DC fast chargers. The fast charger network is the most robust in the nation, with stations along I-5 and other key routes.

                      - Drive Oregon Matching Grant Program has awarded approximately $520,000, leveraging over $24.5 million in additional investment and supporting 68 jobs.
