Western Milling and Kruse Western Renewable Fuels Unveil First CNG Station
This November Western Milling, a grain and feed manufacturer in Tulare County, California will begin operating its first Compressed Natural Gas (CNG) fueling station. Planning for this station began in February 2019, and only 21 months later it is fueling CNG trucks driving along California’s 99 in the heart of the Central Valley. The station is owned and operated by a Western Milling subsidiary called Kruse Western Renewable Fuels. It is unique in the region as the first example of a food processor opening a natural gas station since Harris Ranch opened one in 1999.
Like that successful project which opened the Central Valley to goods movement fueled by natural gas, Kruse Western Renewable Fuels hopes to serve not just Western Milling’s own growing fleet of 32 CNG trucks, but hundreds more in the coming years along this crucial goods movement corridor. Each year over $7 billion in agricultural products are produced and shipped from Tulare County, making Tulare one of the largest agriculture counties in America.
