Transportation currently accounts for the largest single economic sector share of GHG emissions in the US. Addressing the climate impact of transportation requires a significant shift away from fossil gasoline and diesel to a new generation of alternative fuel, Renewable Natural Gas (RNG). Biomethane another name for RNG has established itself as the cleanest fuel option in exitance today.
The United States has an abundant supply of RNG organically sourced from landfill gas, agricultural waste, food waste, and waste water treatment facilities. Consequently, RNG pricing and availability remains stable unlike foreign crude oil markets.
RNG, from some sources, offers net carbon negative results this means that greenhouse gases are sequestered during the fuel lifecycle. Put simply, driving a vehicle fueled with RNG actually eliminates harmful GHG emissions that would otherwise contaminate the air we breathe.
RNG is distributed directly into the natural gas pipeline and dispensed through the network of CNG fueling stations across the country.
Over the last five years, RNG used as fuel for transportation has increased 291%, displacing more than 7.5 Million tons of Carbon Dioxide Equivalent (CO2e). RNG as a transportation fuel has lowered GHG emissions equivalent to removing 18,568,079,404 gasoline-powered passenger vehicles from our roads for one year, this is equal to sequestering carbon equal to growing 123,731,931 tree seedlings for ten years.
