TruStar Energy announces major RNG growth plans for 2021
In 2020, TruStar Energy, which supplies RNG for the transportation sector, completed 42 natural gas fuelling station projects across the US, bringing its total completed projects to 380.
The company’s service network continues to grow, with over 60 service professionals providing coverage to 140 fuelling stations nationwide, producing more than 120 million GGE annually.
In December, the company’s parent, Fortistar, in tandem with TruStar Energy’s distribution efforts, announced the fifth of 12 new RNG projects, together requiring nearly $500 million (€408 million) of new capital investment. These new projects will produce over 100 million GGE annually of RNG, reducing annual US transport emissions by 2 million tonnes of CO2 – equivalent to taking around 434,700 passenger cars off the road.
“The future of renewable heavy-duty transport is here now, thanks to RNG,” said TruStar Energy’s president and CEO, Adam Comora.
“Companies operating Class 8 trucks are quickly realising that they don’t have to wait for new, unproven technologies and infrastructure to significantly reduce their greenhouse gas emissions and save on fuel costs – our RNG does that today.
“We see RNG as a lasting part of a future where there will be many different fuels and technologies for various applications. We’re excited about the long-term benefits of RNG and look forward to helping more organisations deploy it within their heavy-duty fleet.”
Scott Edelbach, COO of TruStar Energy, said: “TruStar Energy combines RNG fuel supply with best-in-class RNG fuel delivery. By designing, engineering, constructing and servicing stations, we ensure seamless execution and uninterrupted fuel supply for our fleet partners.
“TruStar Energy provides a vertically integrated solution for fleets looking to reduce their carbon footprint, save money, and most importantly, do it today.”
