Amp Americas helps fleets secure RNG supplies and developers get RNG to market with full-service solutions based on our expertise and experience. Amp was the first dairy waste to transportation fuel project in the US registered with the EPA and California Air Resources Board. AMP also builds, owns and operates CNG stations for the Class 8 Trucking industry and we owned the first CNG trucking fleet to hit 30 million miles.
Full service generation, sourcing, tracking, compliance, and monetization of environmental attributes for your biogas operations.
Amp Americas brings deep and vast experience in all aspects of the RNG business, including generating and monetizing environmental credits, creating structured pricing solutions for developers including fixed pricing, and selling to dispensers and fleets.

Several State and Federal programs exist to incentivize cleaner transportation fuels. RNG when used as a transportation fuel is eligible to receive credits from the following programs:
Renewable Fuel Standard (RFS)
Administered by the EPA through the Clean Air Act, the RFS mandates that blenders and refiners of petroleum-based fuels procure alternative fuels through its annual Renewable Volume Obligation. Alternative fuel providers receive a Renewable Identification Numbers (RIN) for each gallon of fuel used in transportation. These RINs are then sold to Obligated Parties. RNG qualifies as a cellulosic biofuel and receives a D3 RIN for ethanol gallon equivalent of fuel used in transportation.
Low Carbon Fuel Standard (LCFS)
In addition to qualifying for RINs, RNG qualifies for LCFS credits in California and Oregon. The LCFS program uses lifecycle analysis to determine the environmental impact for every fuel pathway issuing a Carbon Intensity (CI) score. Carbon Intensity is measured in grams of CO2 equivalents per megajoule. As part of their Clean Air Plan, California Air Resources Board has mandated an increasingly lower state-wide CI score each year until 2025. For each ton of CO2 equivalents avoided, LCFS creditors, like RNG providers, receive credits. These credits are then sold to deficit-producing entities. Because of the dual pathway to greenhouse gas reduction outlined above, RNG is recognized by ARB as the cleanest fuel pathway in the LCFS program.
Regulators have created significant financial incentives to reduce the carbon footprint of the transportation sector. These incentives:
RNG consumption is projected to more than double over the next few years.
With our track-record and reputation in the environmental credits markets, we have successfully negotiated forward sales of both RIN and LCFS credits.
This means more price stability and less price risk.
