Renewable Natural Gas

RNG [icon]Natural gas is one of the most widely available eco-friendly fuels for municipal and commercial fleets. This abundant, natural resource is produced in the U.S. and promotes American energy independence. Renewable natural gas (RNG) is captured methane produced through the decomposition of food waste, sewage, refuse or manure. With near-zero emissions, natural gas is also the most practical and proven sustainable fuel choice for Ford medium-duty applications seeking FTA funding.

Plentiful, clean and affordable

Top benefits of natural gas

Renewable

  • Renewable natural gas is abundant because it’s derived from organic waste material found in daily life such as food waste, garden and lawn clippings, and animal and plant-based material
  • More than half of all the natural gas dispensed in California for transportation utilize RNG, powering buses, refuse trucks and heavy-duty trucks
  • Nationwide, usage is rapidly increasing; 39% of all on-road fuel used for natural gas vehicles in 2019 was RNG 
  • RNG is up to 90% cleaner than the NOx EPA standard for gasoline and diesel
  • RNG takes more carbon out of the environment than it produces; it can have a negative carbon intensity rating, which is better than electric vehicles
  • Fully interchangeable with compressed natural gas, is dispenses at CNG stations and can be used in CNG vehicles

Eco-friendly

  • Natural gas is not refined before use as a transportation fuel, saving the energy and emissions that are expended by refining gasoline and diesel from crude petroleum
  • Natural gas reduces greenhouse gases by 20% to 25%
  • When used as a transportation fuel, natural gas substantially reduces VOCs, SO2 and NOx

Effective

  • With an octane rating of approximately 130, natural gas allows for increased engine compression and combustion efficiency
  • Natural gas reduces maintenance costs through less wear on fleet engine
  • Stable prices and availability enable fleets to plan for the long-term
  • Many state and local governments offer incentives for natural gas fleets

Reliable

  • The natural gas fueling structure is in place from coast to coast – the number of fueling stations grows substantially every year
  • The U.S. is the #1 producer of natural gas in world – natural gas recovery is taking place in 33 states and renewable natural gas can be sourced in every state
  • Tens of thousands of fleet vehicles powered by natural gas are in service today with many fleets currently upgrading their original vehicle
