Driving The Alternative Fuel Movement, Frito-Lay Unveils Investment In Compressed Natural Gas Infrastructure

Trillium CNG has more than 20 years of expertise in designing, installing and operating heavy-duty high performance CNG stations with the lowest lifecycle cost and an ultra-fast refueling experience. In addition to building the station in Beloit, Wis., Trillium will be responsible for building CNG stations in: Jonesboro, Ark.; Orlando, Fla.; Charlotte, N.C.; Rosenberg, Texas; and Perry, Ga.

Questar has more than 25 years of CNG experience and will be responsible for building stations in Killingly, Conn., and Topeka, Kan.

In the U.S., Frito-Lay hopes to reduce its total fuel consumption and greenhouse gas emissions by 50 percent by 2020, compared to 2007 baseline. This effort supports PepsiCo's commitments to environmental sustainability, particularly in fuel and greenhouse gas reduction. Frito-Lay, in addition to CNG vehicles, has introduced all-electric trucks to its delivery fleet. In 2012 the company announced it would purchase 100 all-electric commercial vehicles from Smith Electric Vehicles, bringing the total number of its electric fleet to more than 280. These electric trucks eliminate the need for approximately 500,000 gallons of diesel fuel each year.
