Protecting those who live and work near freeways
The use of Renewable Natural Gas (RNG) is cutting carbon and NOx emissions from California's freeways. There is a 90% reduction in NOx emissions from today's heavy-duty RNG trucks compared to their diesel counterparts. The massive reductions in particulate matter and carbon from those RNG trucks translates into cleaner air and less respiratory illness for those populations living or working near a freeway.
No viable commercial alternatives
For the commercial and heavy-duty transportation market, there are no viable fuel alternatives available that are cleaner than Renewable Natural Gas. While some companies have experimented with battery-powered heavy-duty trucks, the best estimates show that they are decades away from development and even further away from legitimate commercial viability.
Don't penalize the vulnerable
Those who argue that today's clean fuels such as Renewable Natural Gas (RNG) should be sidelined in anticipation of an all-electric California of the future are penalizing our state's most vulnerable populations. RNG heavy-duty trucks contributed to California's Greenhouse Gas (GHG) reductions, and will continue to be on the front-lines of cutting carbon and reducing pollution for those who live and work near our freeways.
