Natural gas, a domestically produced gaseous fuel, is readily available through the existing natural gas distribution system. Whether produced via conventional or renewable methods, this clean-burning alternative fuel must be compressed or liquefied for use in vehicles.
North Florida has become a leading hub for LNG (liquified natural gas) on land and sea!
FEC Railway converted its locomotives to dual fuel LNG with pilot investment from the North Florida TPO's Clean Fuels initiatives.
See how JAXPORT, TOTE Maritime and Crowley Maritime are leading the LNG maritime revolution.
The North Florida TPO provided Clean Fuels funding to support the construction of JTA's CNG (compressed natural gas) fueling station for their First Coast Flyer CNG buses and other commercial fleets. Funding was also provided to St. Johns County to support the conversion of public works vehicles to CNG. Some of the other large CNG fleets in our area include city of Jacksonville refuse trucks, Waste Pro and the Palatka Gas Authority.
