A new compressed natural gas station fueled by cow manure at Fair Oaks Farms completes a transportation corridor investors hope will be the first of many across the country.

Stakeholders gathered Monday at the AMP Americas' station at Ind. 14 and Interstate 65 for the grand opening. The site joins the station in Sellersburg, Ind., to fuel 42 Fair Oaks Farms dairy trucks. The trucks deliver milk to three Kroger grocery store dairies serving 560 retail stores in eight states, including Indiana.

Build natural gas refueling locations along the Interstate highway corridors? What a concept.

Fair oaks is less then an hour from me and is a very neat place. I actually build gas engines at Caterpillar that run on Methane (manure and trash) and make power. The trucks run up and down 65 and are easy to spot since they have a huge square tank behind the cab and different style fuel tanks.

Now that's a concept. Cow manure creates gas that fuels trucks that deliver milk.
