Date: 2021-02-24
In Washington, Natural Gas Vehicles for America (NGVAmerica) has released its Fuel a Greener Future report detailing the significant environmental and economic benefits of renewable natural gas (RNG)-fueled fleeting.

RNG-fueled medium- and heavy-duty vehicles are commercially available, proven, and affordable. Depending on the feedstock, they can be carbon-free or carbon negative. Commercial pickups and vans, refuse trucks, transit buses, and Class 8 short haul freight trucks cost-effectively run on RNG, or biogas produced from methane.
