  • Frito-Lay Grows CNG Fleet

    Frito-Lay celebrated the opening of a new Compressed Natural Gas (CNG) station in Dallas the third week of October, advancing its large-scale commitment to alternative fuel. The station at 4200 Duncanville Rd is open to the public.

    The CNG station -- owned and operated by Questar, a natural gas company that has two other fueling stations in Texas -- bolsters Dallas’ current CNG infrastructure. Frito-Lay is the anchor tenant at the new station, which is also open to other companies currently using or thinking about alternative fuels for medium and heavy-duty trucks in the future.

    Frito-Lay will continue to grow its CNG fleet, bringing the total number of its CNG tractors to more than 300 by the end of 2014. Once deployed, the CNG tractors will make up 30 percent of Frito-Lay’s fleet.

    Re: Frito-Lay Grows CNG Fleet

    “As we push to make Frito-Lay's fleet the most fuel-efficient commercial fleet in the U.S., we need to continue to build on our current strategy and look for options to address other types of trucks in the fleet - one of which will be compressed natural gas for our tractor fleet,” continued O'Connell.

    Compressed natural gas (CNG) tractors will be introduced this spring, and will be used to haul large loads. Each CNG vehicle, purchased from Freightliner, will reduce greenhouse gas emissions by 23 percent compared to diesel. With 67 CNG vehicles planned to be on route by the end of the year, Frito-Lay will eliminate the need for more than 900,000 gallons of diesel fuel annually. Depending on fuel tank size, the CNG trucks can range 300 to 740 miles.

    The CNG vehicles will be used at seven Frito-Lay North America distribution centers: Rancho Cucamonga, California; Irving, Texas; Phoenix and Casa Grande, Arizona; Beloit, Wisconsin; Frankfort, Indiana and Charlotte, North Carolina. The company piloted 18 CNG vehicles to prepare for the roll out.

        I'm sure a lot of leftovers from the production of their snacks could be used as a feedstock for bio-CNG in the future...

          The proposed Questar public CNG station that was to have been built in Killingly CT was "killed" as a result of feedback from residents at a hearing, including that of residents of the only 6 homes near the site. It was to have served the nearby Frito-Lay truck fleet. The objections were mainly based on zoning and noise. Yet, a satellite view of the Lake Road and Alexander Parkway Killingly CT site shows a preponderance of large commercial development - including a full-blown electricity generating plant for the region! Permitting things in Connecticut must be harder than anywhere else in the country!

          The detail in the special hearing is an eye-opener:

            American Natural Gas (ANG) has broken ground on its new public CNG station located at 4383 Leckron Rd Modesto CA.

            PepsiCo division Frito-Lay will be the anchor fleet for the station, which is scheduled for completion in January 2020. This is ANG’s 61st CNG station.

              ByKyle Field for CleanTechnica Oct 7, 2019 - Frito-Lay Ditches Diesel For CNG At Modesto Hub

              Parent company PepsiCo, Inc. is replacing the fleet of diesel freight vehicles that service its Frito-Lay plant in Modesto, California with zero-emission and near-zero emission vehicles. The equipment in the project includes:

              15 fully electric Class 8 Tesla Semi trucks
              6 fully electric Class 6 Peterbilt e220 straight trucks
              38 Volvo CNG-fueled trucks

              A public American Natural Gas CNG station at 4383 Leckron Rd Modesto CA is adjacent to the facility.

              Half of the funding for the $30.7 million project comes from state Cap and Trade funds through the California Climate Investments (CCI) program while the other half of the funds are being put up by project stakeholders Frito-Lay and ANG in cash and in-kind contributions from Cafe Coop. The Modesto project directly supports Frito-Lay parent company PepsiCo’s goal of reducing absolute greenhouse gas emissions by 20% by 2030.

                Dale Lunan for Natural Gas World 9 Sep 2021 - Joint venture allows Chevron to acquire ANG's 60 CNG stations across US

                The joint venture with Mercuria will allow Chevron to rapidly grow its RNG value chain, building on a commitment earlier this year to open more than 30 Chevron-branded CNG stations by 2025. Its first, in Napa, California, was opened in June.

                Chevron is committed to producing a tenfold increase in RNG volumes by 2025 compared to 2020.
