By turning waste into fuel, renewable compressed natural gas (RNG) vehicles are the cleanest vehicles on our roads. RNG is produced through anaerobic digestion of manure and food, municipal, and solid waste; and is sourced from dairy farms, waste treatment facilities, and landfills. What would normally decompose, producing methane emissions that are 30 times more potent than CO2, is processed instead into a carbon negative fuel and delivered to vehicles at RNG/CNG fueling stations.
In the heavy-duty segment, RNG is a sure-thing alternative to diesel. RNG has, on-average for the past decade, been more than a dollar less per gallon than diesel, and because all RNG is produced domestically, has virtually none of the volatility that diesel does.
Up to 400 Percent Reduction in Greenhouse Gas Emissions
When RNG is used to fuel vehicles, it can provide major reductions in greenhouse gas emissions—in addition to clean air benefits. According to the California Air Resources Board, RNG sourced from landfill-diverted food and green waste can provide a 125 percent reduction in greenhouse gas emissions, and RNG from dairy manure can result in a 400 percent reduction in greenhouse gas emissions when replacing traditional vehicle fuels.
