          Trucking Info Dec 22, 2021 - Making the Case for Renewable Fuels in Trucking

          Energy Vision — which has been promoting the production and use of RNG since 2009 — published a new report to assess various alternative fuels and new vehicle technologies for reducing greenhouse gas emissions and other negative impacts from waste and recycling collection truck fleets.

          Of the nine strategies analyzed, the report found trucks equipped with natural gas engines powered by organic waste-derived RNG fuel achieved the greatest benefits at the lowest cost. RNG trucks rated highest in terms of performance, cost, and cutting lifecycle GHG emissions, and health-damaging pollutants.

          Methane from decomposing organics in landfills, on farms, and at wastewater treatment plants account for 30% of total U.S. methane emissions. Currently, a portion of this methane is captured and refined to produce nearly 500 million gallons of RNG fuel a year, but that is roughly just 5% of overall potential RNG production.

          Of the 180,000 refuse trucks currently operating in the U.S., there are approximately 10,000 refuse trucks powered by RNG, according to the report.
