Honda has opened a public-access compressed natural gas (CNG) fueling station on its campus in Marysville, Ohio, the company announced.

The fully automated station will be operated by Trillium CNG, which also designed and constructed the station. It is the first public CNG station located on a Honda property in North America, according to the automaker.

"The station will feature our new proprietary fast-fill 7" Hydraulic Intensifier Compressor (HY-C). The new HY-C is capable of delivering more fuel than most conventional CNG sites, allowing multiple heavy-duty vehicles to fuel faster than ever across multiple lanes," said Joel Jansen, vice president of Trillium CNG.

The CNG station is located at the interchange of Route 33 and Route 739, near Honda's manufacturing and R&D operations, and is part of a strategy that has seen Honda reduce the CO2 emissions intensity of its parts shipments by more than 35 percent since 2009, the company said. The station will feature three Class 8 dispensers for over-the-road carriers, and can also serve customers who drive CNG-fueled passenger cars.

Through its "green factory" and "green purchasing" programs, Honda plants in North America have reduced waste sent to landfills by 91.9 percent over the past 13 years, Honda added.
