Natural Gas Fleets
Natural Gas Vehicles Help Achieve Environmental Goals
Shippers, trucking fleets, municipalities, refuse companies and transit systems across the country are achieving lower greenhouse gas and environmental-related emissions through greater use of natural gas, which provides clear advantages among alternative transportation fuels.
There are approximately 165,000 NGVs operating in the United States today.
The low cost of natural gas, combined with unprecedented public and private investment, has led to significant market growth and more vehicle and fueling options than ever before. Companies such as UPS, Waste Management, AT&T, Frito-Lay, Penske, Ryder, Unilever, Saddle Creek, Anheuser-Busch, FedEx Freight, Fiat-Chrysler Transport and others are converting their fleets to natural gas to take advantage of this opportunity.

Heavy-duty natural gas engine technology available today is more than 90 percent cleaner than the most stringent applicable U.S. EPA standards for oxides of nitrogen. When fueled with renewable natural gas (RNG) made from waste stream sources such as landfill gas, dairy waste, waste water treatment plants and other sources, lifecycle GHG emissions are reduced by more than 80 percent. The combination of new near-zero-emission natural gas engine technology and RNG provides the single best opportunity for the U.S. to achieve immediate and substantial nitrogen oxide (NOx) and greenhouse gas emission reductions in the on-road heavy-duty transportation sectors.
