5 Companies Operating Compressed Natural Gas Fleets


Compressed natural gas emits up to 30 percent less carbon dioxide and costs less than the price of gasoline. All around the country, businesses with a stake in the trucking industry are taking advantage of these environmental and economic benefits. Here are just a few:

Frito-Lay: In 2007, one third of the snack company’s greenhouse gas emissions came from its sales and delivery fleet. Now the company saves fuel and reduces emissions by operating a fleet of 208 compressed natural gas trucks and 269 electric delivery trucks.

AT&T: The telecommunications giant is going BIG with its alternative fuel vehicle commitment, investing $565 million to get 15,000+ alt fuel vehicles on the road in the next 10 years. AT&T estimates that the natural gas vehicles will reduce CO2 emissions by 211,000 metric tons.

UPS: Compressed natural gas has been a part of UPS’ trucking fleet since 1989, but the company’s alt fuel mix also includes hybrid gas/electric vehicles, liquefied natural gas and electric engines, which UPS first tested in the 1930s!

Waste Management: As one of the first refuse companies to invest in a natural gas fleet 10+ years ago in Southern California, Waste Management now has natural gas vehicles operating all throughout North America. Their collection includes 3,000 natural gas trucks.

Renergy: Renergy’s transportation division operates a fleet of compressed natural gas trucks to reduce clients’ carbon footprint by offsetting diesel emissions when hauling their organic waste to our anaerobic digestion facilities. Renergy also operates a public compressed natural gas station with IGS CNG Services in Marengo, OH.
