Clean Energy Fuels Corp. has opened a public-access compressed natural gas (CNG) fueling station at Orlando International Airport in Florida, the company announced.

The new station, under a 20-year lease agreement with the Greater Orlando Aviation Authority, is open 24 hours a day and can accommodate a variety of natural gas vehicles ranging in size from passenger cars and airport support vehicles to heavy-duty trucks, according to Clean Energy Fuels.

"Orlando International Airport is committed to pursuing and promoting green initiatives that reinforce our reputation as a conscientious community partner," said Phil Brown, executive director of the Greater Orlando Aviation Authority. "This station is an important component of our sustainability effort and is an environmentally responsible way to ensure the natural beauty of Central Florida is protected for future generations."

Clean Energy Fuels also operates a public-access CNG station at the Tampa International Airport in Florida.
