AMP Americas, a U.S. provider of compressed natural gas (CNG) infrastructure and fueling solutions for the heavy duty trucking industry, has launched its newly formed biogas division ‘ampRENEW’, dedicated to the company’s rapidly growing renewable fuel business. In addition, Dillon Transport and Ruan Transportation Management Systems have signed fueling agreements with ampRENEW to fuel a portion of their fleets at ampCNG’s public access fueling stations.
The Renewable Compressed Natural Gas (RCNG — RNG — biomethane) will be completely sourced from ampCNG’s biogas operation at Fair Oaks Farms in Indiana, the largest on-farm bio-digester in the country. ampRENEW’s ultra clean fuel is processed entirely from agricultural waste produced at ampCNG’s anaerobic digester. RNG reduces greenhouse gas emissions by up to 100% when compared to diesel and is the cleanest heavyduty transport fuel available today.
“Five years ago, AMP Americas was conceived as a renewable energy development company with the goal of helping longhaul trucking fleets become greener and cleaner,” said Grant Zimmerman, CEO at ampCNG at the 2016 Advanced Clean Transportation “ACT” Expo in Long Beach, California this week.
Dillon Transport will be served by ampCNG’s two fueling stations in Jacksonville, Florida. Ruan, one of the first fleets to use RNG from Fair Oaks Farms, will continue to fuel at ampCNG’s three stations in Indiana.
ampCNG’s 42tractor fleet, in partnership with Ruan, a new member of the Carbon Disclosure Project, recently hit a milestone by eclipsing 40 million miles powered by ampCNG’s CNG and RNG. ampCNG along with its parent company, AMP Americas, currently operates a network of 19 high performance, ultra fast-fill fueling stations located strategically across the U.S. With numerous fueling station projects under development, the businesses support some of the largest CNG fleets in the country with partners in the food and beverage, agriculture and dairy industries.
