Applied LNG Technologies USA, LLC (ALT) has entered an agreement for the supply of liquefied natural gas (LNG) to HayDay Farms™ for use in their new fleet of state-of-the-art LNG fueled trucks used in the distribution of their feed products and in port delivery for overseas shipping. HayDay Farms has replaced its fleet of diesel trucks with units that utilize clean-burning LNG fuel. The use of LNG will help to reduce harmful emissions of smog-forming NOx by more than 30 percent and greenhouse gas emissions by more than 20 percent. While these clean-burning LNG trucks will significantly reduce the amount of harmful emissions emitted into the air, they will also significantly reduce HayDay Farm’s distribution costs and allow their vehicles to run more efficiently and with less maintenance. With a significant cost advantage, fleet operators report a 30 percent or better operational cost savings when running LNG trucks in place of diesel units. HayDay Farms expects to see similar results.
