ökosphäre Spins off Compressed Natural Gas Business as Ciengas, LLC
After more than a year of incubation in ökosphäre's business initiatives group, the firm's compressed natural gas (CNG) efforts are being transferred to newly formed Ciengas, LLC
Rexburg, ID, September 29, 2009 – To spur new development and investment in compressed natural gas (CNG) as replacement clean fuel for vehicles, ökosphäre is spinning off key assets, technology, and business relationships of a start-up business effort incubated in ökosphäre's business initiatives group to form an independent company called Ciengas, LLC.
Ciengas will develop, build, and manage a network of CNG refueling stations across the United States. In addition to focusing on retail delivery of CNG fuel, Ciengas will also create direct relationships with natural gas producers and brokers to build a reliable well-to-pump delivery system. Having already established relationships with world-leading CNG equipment manufacturers, Ciengas expects to install its first CNG fueling station in the first half of 2010.
“Ciengas is a great example of the next generation entrepreneurial efforts at ökosphäre,” said Stephen Loosli, vice president of business development for ökosphäre. “This is an important and exciting step in our nation's pursuit of energy independence and clean fuels. We look forward to supporting Ciengas as it pursues its destiny.”
Compressed natural gas or CNG is a domestically abundant, clean burning fuel that directly replaces traditional liquid fuels like unleaded gasoline. Producing 90% less emissions than unleaded gasoline, CNG offers similar vehicle performance at less than one-half the cost per gallon. With literally decades of already developed supply, a change to CNG would finally allow the U.S. To break its dependence on foreign oil while significantly improving the environment in the process. As a domestically available fuel, thousands of new jobs will be created to develop this resource. Most importantly, the CNG network can be easily re-purposed for hydrogen fuels as that technology matures. Several commercially produced CNG vehicles are already available with more to come as the CNG refueling network grows.
Ciengas will be announcing senior management appointments shortly. In the meantime, ökosphäre will continue to provide business management and consulting to Ciengas during a short transition phase.
