RNG Provided Over Half of On-Road Fuel Used in Natural Gas Vehicles

NGVAmerica and the Coalition for Renewable Natural Gas (RNG Coalition) say 53% of all on-road fuel used in natural gas vehicles in 2020 was renewable natural gas (RNG).

Captured above ground from organic material in agricultural, wastewater, landfill or food waste, RNG can produce carbon-negative results when fueling on-road vehicles like short- and long-haul trucks, transit buses, and refuse and recycling collection vehicles. The California Air Resources Board’s Q3 2020 data confirms that the energy weighted carbon intensity (CI) value of California’s RNG vehicle fuel portfolio in its Low Carbon Fuel Standard (LCFS) program is carbon-negative and below zero, at -17.95 gCO2e/MJ.
