Three companies are teaming up to offer a webinar next month that will address compressed natural gas (CNG) adoption for the waste industry.

The one-hour webinar, titled “Tackling the Challenges of CNG Adoption for the Waste Industry,” will start at 1 p.m. Central on March 23. It’s being hosted by Broadwind-SAFE, Hexagon Composites and Agility Fuel Systems.

A presenter from each company will offer insights on how to avoid common obstacles and mistakes when converting your fleet to CNG; follow a road map to success based on lessons learned and best practice case studies; reduce unplanned operations and maintenance while improving safety; develop best practice infrastructure and equipment to enable fleet conversion; and come up with critical questions to consider before getting started.

Semi-technical to technical professionals including engineers, operations and purchasing professionals should participate, or anyone evaluating natural gas stations for fleet including waste, transit, trucking or public vehicles are encouraged to attend.

The three presenters have a wide range of experiences in CNG and other energy industries.
