Ohio State University (OSU) has issued a request for qualifications “to design and build a $2.5 million CNG [compressed natural gas] station in the Kenny Road area,” reportsColumbus Business First. The station would be the first for OSU, which currently has four university buses running on CNG and plans to convert more vehicles to alternative fuels. An OSU spokesperson quoted in the article said, “The university has a commitment to sustainability and the benefits of a CNG fueling station are both sustainable and cost-effective.” CNG produces lower emissions than gasoline or diesel fuel and is usually cheaper. Construction of the station “that would offer fast-fill fueling to light and heavy vehicles” is expected to start February 2016 and should be complete in November 2016.
