ampCNG CEO to Speak on Zero Emissions Panel at ACT Expo
LONG BEACH, Calif. – May 4, 2016 – AMP Americas, a leading provider of compressed natural gas (CNG) infrastructure and fueling solutions for the heavy-duty trucking industry, today announced from the 2016 Advanced Clean Transportation “ACT” Expo, the launch of ampRENEW, its newly formed biogas division dedicated to the company’s rapidly growing renewable fuel business. In addition, Dillon Transport and Ruan Transportation Management Systems have signed fueling agreements with ampRENEW to fuel a portion of their fleets at ampCNG’s public-access fueling stations.
The Renewable Compressed Natural Gas (RCNG) will be completely sourced from ampCNG’s biogas operation at Fair Oaks Farms in Indiana, the largest on-farm biodigester in the country. ampRENEW’s ultra clean fuel is processed entirely from agricultural waste produced at ampCNG’s anaerobic digester. RCNG reduces greenhouse gas emissions by up to 100% when compared to diesel and is the cleanest heavy-duty transport fuel available today.
“Five years ago, AMP Americas was conceived as a renewable energy development company with the goal of helping long-haul trucking fleets become greener and cleaner,” said Grant Zimmerman, CEO at ampCNG. “We remain committed to expanding our renewable operations with aggressive, sustainable and innovative solutions, and we are thrilled to be partnering with Dillon and Ruan, true leaders in the trucking industry.”
Dillon Transport will be served by ampCNG’s two fueling stations in Jacksonville, Florida. Ruan, one of the first fleets to use RCNG from Fair Oaks Farms, will continue to fuel at ampCNG’s three stations in Indiana.
ampCNG’s 42-tractor fleet, in partnership with Ruan, a new member of the Carbon Disclosure Project, recently hit a milestone by eclipsing 40 million miles powered by ampCNG’s CNG and RCNG. ampCNG along with its parent company, AMP Americas, currently operates a network of 19 high performance, ultra fast-fill fueling stations located strategically across the U.S. With numerous fueling station projects under development, the businesses support some of the largest CNG fleets in the country with partners in the food and beverage, agriculture and dairy industries.
ampCNG will be exhibiting at ACT Expo at Booth 851, and CEO Grant Zimmerman will be a panelist on the 4 p.m. PST session on Wednesday, May 4, on Low Carbon Fuels: Getting to Truly Zero Emissions. Zimmerman will present a case study on fueling with renewable CNG in room 201.
