We'd Like to Clear Up the Air
Mitchell Receives National Environmental Award

Milwaukee County's General Mitchell International Airport has a clear vision: a full fleet of natural-gas ground vehicles and a full-service, on-site natural gas fueling station. With its recent introduction of three CNG (natural gas) shuttles -- which will cause a reduction in NOx emissions by 3.84 tons annually -- Mitchell is on the road toward its cleaner air goals.

These breathtaking changes haven't gone unnoticed. Milwaukee County recently accepted the Achievement Award from the Natural Gas Vehicle (NGV) Coalition during the 21st National NGV Conference and Exhibition in Las Vegas. The award recognized organizations dedicated to improving and enhancing air quality.
