UPS and the renewable natural gas transportation

By | 2015-05-06

On May 5, 2015, UPS became the largest user of renewable natural gas in shipping industry in United States. It represents a milestone for transport with renewable natural gas (RNG ).

The agreement between UPS and Clean Energy will allow UPS to replace approximately 1,5 million gasoline gallons equivalents (GGE ) per year. This means that almost 400 UPS vehicles will refuel at 3 RNG stations in California.

This advance in the RNG opens the door for conversion of over 2,500 natural gas vehicles already own by UPS to the RNG .

The company has a goal of driving one billion miles using its alternative fuel and advanced technology fleet by the end of 2017.

1,5 millions GGE =  reduction of 15 048 tonnes of CO2 per year
