Marking the closure of the sale of its 20 ampCNG fueling stations to American Natural Gas (ANG) for $41 million, AMP Americas says it will continue to own and operate its landmark Indiana biogas operations through its Renewable Dairy Fuels (RDF) business unit. The company will also continue to invest heavily in dairy RNG projects and plans to break ground on two additional dairy biogas operations later this year.
Amp Americas is an industry pioneer is the supply of renewable natural gas for North America’s transportation sector. It operates two business units: Renewable Dairy Fuels (RDF) and Amp Renew. RDF produces 100% renewable natural gas from dairy waste. RDF received the first dairy waste-to-vehicle fuel pathway certified by California’s Air Resources Board (CARB). The company was also awarded a Carbon Intensity (CI) score of -254.94 gCO2e/MJ, the lowest ever issued by CARB.
Amp Renew sources renewable gas from RDF and third party RNG developers to supply fuel to fleet customers.
“ANG shares in our vision of reducing greenhouse gas emissions and moving the alternative fuel industry forward. We are proud to be helping them further expand their network to over 60 CNG stations,” said Grant Zimmerman, CEO of AMP Americas. “This transaction gives us substantial runway for our next phase of growth and enables us to focus on our growing pipeline of dairy RNG projects.”
In February this year, Amp Americas informed the market that its RDF business unit had expanded production at its biogas operation at Fair Oaks Farms by 30 percent. The Indiana project was the first dairy biogas-to-transportation fuel project in the country and now has the capacity to produce over 2.3 million gallons per year of 100 percent renewable transportation fuel from dairy waste.
RDF’s Fair Oaks facility remains the second-largest dairy biogas-to-transportation fuel project in the country, bested only by RDF’s facility in Jasper County, Indiana, which came online in August 2018 as the largest in the nation.
