A Green Fleet Does Not Go Unnoticed: Georgia County Wins Top Honors

Submitted by on June 7, 2018 – 7:19 pmNo Comment

by Betsy Lillian (NGT News)  Thanks in part to its “green fleet policy,” DeKalb County, Ga., has been awarded the No. 1 spot in this year’s edition of “The 100 Best Fleets in the Americas.”

Sponsored by ICOM, FuelForce, Invers, Verizon, Protec Fuel and AssetWorks, the 16th annual contest “recognizes and rewards peak-performing fleet operations in North America” and “identifies and encourages ever-increasing levels of performance improvement within the fleet industry.”

According to the county’s “green fleet policy,” DeKalb places a priority on purchasing and using “fuel-efficient and lowest-emission vehicles and equipment” that are “reasonably cost-competitive” over their lifetime. For example, the policy states that fuels such as propane, natural gas, ethanol, electricity and biodiesel should be adopted “when feasible.”

In 2009, the county, in partnership with the Clean Cities Atlanta Coalition, inked a federal grant of $14.9 million for a two-year program to convert methane gas from DeKalb’s Seminole Landfill into CNG. In addition, the grant funded the conversion of 70 waste-collection vehicles to run on CNG. DeKalb is also one of four entities comprising a public-private partnership to convert methane to natural gas at the Live Oak Landfill in Georgia.  READ MORE
