Kane Unveils New Natural Gas Powered Trucks

TAYLOR — A trucking company in Lackawanna County is expanding its fleet with seven rigs that run on natural gas.

Officials at Kane made the announcement Monday at its offices at the Stauffer Industrial Park in Taylor.

They said the new trucks will be based at Procter and Gamble in Mehoopany which has a compressed natural gas (CNG) fueling station.

“The trucks will go from there, go out and make their deliveries, and then come back to refuel. And it works out great because it is that closed loop system. It works out perfectly for the compressed natural gas and the mile turn that needs to be made by the vehicle,” said Alex Stark with Kane Is Able, Inc.

Kane said the new CNG trucks are cleaner, producing up to 20 percent fewer greenhouse gas emissions, and can go about 425 miles between fueling.
