CNG Services of
Arizona439 N. Clement St.480.461.5166
CNG Services of Arizona promotes the use of alternative fuels for
transportation by giving the public an opportunity to drive with cleaner
natural gas (methane). Compressed Natural gas is derived from
conventional natural gas sources as well as renewable sources such as
landfills, sewage and dairies. Owner and President, David Clement says
his company also offers to switch garbage trucks and semi-trucks to
natural gas, and states that switching one large truck is the same as
taking 324 cars off of the road and can reduce the particulate pollution
emissions by about 130,000 lbs. each year. Natural gas burns cleaner
and cheaper than liquid fuels and is a domestic product. David is also
the current Chairman of the Arizona Natural Gas Coalition.
